    The answer from the heart would be: MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

    But my niece just started sewing and I guess I would give the bag to her, heartbroken of course….

    This bag would be perfect for me (or my mom, or my cousin, , or my neighbourwho all sew, if I was in an extremely generous mood). What an eye-catching piece……..hmmm, another thing for my Santa list for sure!!!!!

    Me, of course! Alternately, one of my good friends from college, who loves all things vintage-looking and is the only non-virtual friend I have who sews. (And she’s the one who introduced me to ModCloth, so it’s appropriate!)

    I would like this bag!! I am being selfish so this gift would be all mine. But if I were to purchase the bag for a gift for someone else I think I have a few friends that would also love to fet this as well as my sister and fellow sewista’s.

    It would be an amazing gift for both my mother, my grandmother and myself! We are all hobby seamstresses. But you know, my grandmother really do have enough bags already and my mother doesn’t really carry a handbag at all, so It should really me a gift for me… just saying…

    It would be the perfect gift for me of course. And, my neighbor who sews. And my mom. And my daughter, who is just at the beginning of her sewing odyssey at 7. And my husband…ok, he doesn’t sew but he would give it to me…I hope!!

    I think it would make a great wedding shower gift for my younger sister. My sister has been sewing more and I know she does not have too many supplies, so I would stash this bag full of fabric, sewing patterns, and notions to give to her as a gift. Then she can use the bag as storage and to carry along her current projects when she comes to visit me.

    I would probably give it to my daughter. However, with any luck, she’d say it was too “old” looking for her styling 13 year old self and I’d get to use it!

    ME, ME, ME!!! – Oh you mean someone else? Well Denise my sewing teacher would love it, But I think I’d have to give it to my Mum, although she is " allergic" to sewing (I know weird huh?) she is passionate about bags and she would love the quirkiness and individuality of this.

    Hmm, who would this be a great gift for? Me! None of my friends or family sew, and they wouldn’t appreciate the details on lovely bag. But I am really drawn to the little extras like the tape measure bow and calico pocket and of course the print that looks like pattern tissue.

    I think my friend Jessica and I would share joint custody. Because we’d both completely love it and want to own it, but also want each other to have it too. We’re both ridiculously excited about having a friend who sews.

    It would have to be a gift for me. Like so may others have commented,none of my friends or family sew. I guess that’s why we hang out here so much:) Having said that, my son’s girlfriend has developed a passion for sewing and crafting so it would be perfect for her.

    This bag is destined for ME! It would be the best funky accessory to spruce up my plain back winter jacket. When not using it as a purse, I think I’ll use it as a carry-on bag once I’ve saved enough to go visit my grandparents in the Philippines. It looks like it will fit Big Bunny my stuffed animal, my laptop, my Kobo, my shoes and various other stuff I`d pack in it to survive the 25 hour trip. Yea, 25 hours.
