    My daughter needs a bag to tote her dance shoes (plural) back and forth from dance class. I could use another tote to carry all the snacks and things I take to her class to keep her brothers occupied while she dances!!!

    I would love one those these! They are so cute! Loving this fabric!

    I would use the bag to tote our lunch. My kids and I walk to the park every day and have a picnic.

    Definitely would carry our library books. Love them.

    delightful! I’d like it as a cute library bag and when I can “steal” it away from my daughter (who adores any purse/bag), for my embroidery on roadtrips!

    I spend a lot of time babysitting my grandchildren and always take along this and that for the day. This would become my ‘grandma bag’ if I was lucky enough to win! Thanks for the chance!

    I ride the bus to work & always need a bag for my book, shawl or sweater if they have the AC on extra high & my umbrella. This would be such a treat after using my 99 cent Safeway bag!

    I’d love one for carrying my handsewing projects!

    aren’t the possibilities of use endless for this sweet thing?

  10. November 9, 2010 at 11:01 am Link

    I would use these as cute project bags! The fabric collection matches my living room decor and it would be much better than having all my projects spilling out all over the place!

    These are so awesome! My daughter would want to use this for her dance gear, and I would use mine for my books that I carry around. I don’t currently have a bag I use regularly for them and they often get tossed in my car, much less something so stylish.

    I would use the bags to help tote library books. We recently moved and have access to a public library again. (Sweet!) My kiddos could use a special bag for library days.

  13. November 9, 2010 at 10:40 am Link

    I would use it for books and writing materials for all the kids (okay, and maybe me) to help in those inevitable traffic jams/doctor’s appointments/DMV visits/grocery store trips. And maybe a toy or two for the little one. :)

    Would definitely use mine for a keeper in the car. I always need something pretty to show off when shopping for more fabrics! My Niblet would probably pack up her Bunny and some books. She loves stashing things away and carrying them around. Thanks for the chance!

    Still looks perfect for that iPad or Kindle I want to get!

  16. November 9, 2010 at 10:26 am Link

    I’d use mine any time I go out with my daughter and if I forget, you can be sure she’ll remind me!! Partner look!

  17. November 9, 2010 at 10:24 am Link

    This looks like such a sweet little bag in which to stash my sweet little girl’s pj’s — it would look great hanging on a hook in her room!

  18. November 9, 2010 at 10:20 am Link

    I will use this bag to hang off my stroller and fill it with all the nick nacks I need when me and the kiddo’s are out and about at appointments, shopping…

  19. November 9, 2010 at 10:20 am Link

    I’d plan on using mine as a project bag for hand stitching and my sketch book and she’d use hers for extra clothes to school. I think it will be the fanciest there!

  20. November 9, 2010 at 10:19 am Link

    Project Bags! We both love to knit and stitch.

  21. November 9, 2010 at 10:08 am Link

    I’m going to use it to replace the sad worn out bag that I’ve carried for 2 years now. It carries reading material,a knitting project, and pen and paper. I rarely forget to leave home with it and it has saved me from many a boring wait. Time for a new one!

  22. November 9, 2010 at 10:08 am Link

    I’ll tell you the same thing I told Martha 😉 I think this would make a perfect gift for my friend who knits! It looks like a perfect project bag!

  23. November 9, 2010 at 10:04 am Link

    I want to use these bags to put all the doll clothes I’m making my girls for christmas, I think it would make such a cute gift. Of course I’ll need to make three of them!

    These are perfect library day bags- for both her and me!

  25. November 9, 2010 at 9:47 am Link

    I love this bag and fabric! I am a huge fan of Oliver + S! I will use it as my all purpose bag/purse and it will likely carry any combination of the following items:

    wallet, keys, phone, ipod
    current knitting project
    book(s) and/or magazine(s)
    make up bag
    extra pair of shoes maybe (this is a necessity in NYC)
    bottle of water
    pens and mints

    Thanks for the giveaway and free pattern!
