    Who would this NOT be a great gift for!?!? This is the kind of bag that you could literallly give to ANYONE- male or female, sewer or not-yet-sewer. It’s a fabulous, witty, charming, delightful and LARGE bag. What’s not to love! If I have to pick one person, though, I’d pick my grandmother. She sewed for about 80 years of her life. She is 95 now and has to retire her sewing machine. It’s been a sad process for her, so I’d love for her to have this bag for her travels. If she can’t sew, she may as well look like she can!

    This bag is a HOOT. I can just picture myself at the airport heading off to a fun and exotic destination with the coolest carry-on bag around. ..and may I modestly mention that I have minimal packing down to an art ;).

    While I hate to be greedy. I really am the perfect recipient. I sew almost every day and use old patterns for all manner of paper arts projects too. How perfect is that?!
