You are so generous to be giving away such a lovely bag! I had commented earlier that I wanted to try to make one myself, but with the way my 'sewing' area is, I would much prefer to win it! ;)

What would I do with it? It would for sure become my 'summer bag'- the one that would be ready to go with sunscreen, watercolors, sunglasses and the like- used to have one, but younger child has been using it to carry his music stand in for the last year (your bag is way cuter anyway!)
