    If I had to give it away, I would give it to my sister-in-law, who would find it quite charming—but I think i’d give it to myself!

    Well, if I didn’t keep it for myself I’d give it to my crafty artist friend who is afraid of her sewing machine. It might give her some moral support. She’d also appreciate that it is vegan.

    Meee! I’ve been looking for a cute overnight bag. This bag is adorable! If I was to give it to someone else, I’d probably give it to one of my sisters who also enjoys sewing.

    Well, me, of course! But it would also be great for a friend of mine who’s been afraid to make her own clothes; I think it would inspire her to give it a try!

    this would be perfect for my mom-she loves to sew and is saving money for a new sewing machine—right now she uses mine and is still teaching me things about sewing.

    I would definitely LOVE this bag…however, if we’re talking about gifting of this bag, then it would have to be my Aunt as she is as passionate about her sewing as I am.

    Meeee. I know that’s terrible, but this bag suits me to a T. I would have bought it already except for the hefty price tag. But I would love to take this bag on trips and confuse the heck out of the rest of the people at the airport.

    I would give it to my 80 years old mother, and hope she woul come visiting me overnight more often.

    Uhh… obviously this bag is a perfect gift for ME! But if I had to give it away I do have a friend who travels often and is a fashion design student. She would totally appreciate the creativity and style.

    This would be perfect for a friend of mine that loves to sew. She also travels on the weekends occasionally, meeting friends at other universities around the south of England, so it would suit her perfectly for such a trip!

    This bag is a little bit like me…I’m vegan and I like to sew. But since Christmas is about giving I would like to give it to my friend Steffi…She tries to live vegan and learns to sew…this bag would be a great motivation.

    My sister, she inspired me to start sewing but has now given it up herself, maybe this would inspire her to restart.

    This bag would make the perfect gift for me! I never treat myself and neither does anyone else so I’m going to be selfish!

    This bag would make a great gift for my best friend who is just starting to get in to sewing :) but I would want one for myself too, so I might have to buy a second one even if I did win!

    While I would be tempted to keep this bag, I think the one person on my list who would truly appreciate it is my friend Danielle.
