I love bags and that one is really cute.

I would use it to carry my crochet stuff in it. I always bring a current project with me to work and keep in my car. This bag would be great for that, I could even put my other stuff in it as well, like my binder of patterns.

Thanks for the opportunity to win.

what a lovely bag too, this would be my activitybag. I'd fill it with colouring books and crayons, puzzles and small toys to keep the peanut occupied in restaurants and on car trips and visits to friends.

I love the orange design

Tommye said...

You do lovely work. I'd put another stitching project in that bag.

Oh, I could start filling it right now...I'm headed to the no frills beach for 10 days in June...so....
I'll pretend like I'm filling it now:)
Lipbalm, suntan stuff, an extra pair of glasses, My new Wally Lamb book, a blank book, a pack of markers and a sharpie pen, the phone charger so I don't lose it, but not the phone, some bottlecap peace signs for sharing, an itsy bitsky bikini (Because it;s the last summer I can get away with it) and 3.00 for my first beer at the Tiki Bar! Ta~dah! Oh, and if I could squeeze it in, the tambourine:)

forestcreations said...

I think I will carry items to the beach in my new bag or take it to the farmers' market (if I win that is).

exousia said...

Would carry my craft show supplies inside! Markers, pens, tags, paper, wires, business cards, scissors, string and more <3

Becky said...

I would carry quilting/sewing stuff :) Orange is my favorite color!!

ladyfoxandhound said...

I would pop my puppy in it, so we could sneak on to the sky train/public transit. Actually, more often, I would use it to carry essays (for marking and marked), goods from my neighbourhood italian deli and fruit and veg. stand...

Shrimp Salad Circus said...

That bag has all the trappings of my new carryall. I would throw my wallet in it on the way out and then fill it with goodies while out shopping. Much better than a shopping bag with some cheesy store logo. I'd probably also have to toss my never-ending crochet project in there for good measure.

shrimpsaladcircus@gmail.com

Mia said...

Adorable!!! I would carry my library books, when necessary or tomatoes, cucumbers and flowers from the market..or maybe yummy things for summer picnics:)

Jen said...

Reparapy said...

i am in my studio eating the most delectable Clementine as I read your blog. Coincindentally, my tasty, juicy, sweet mini orange is almost exactly the same color as your super cool tote. So, I'm thinking that it must be divine intervention and that bag will soon be mine! :-)

It just seems to me that your bag would only want to be filled with wholesome goodies. If I were lucky enough to win that amazing tote, I would take it with me to the grocery store and fill it with the most colorful fruits and vegetables.

Cheers!

I LOVE it!!!! I have it marked in my Etsy favorites.

I would carry books in it, since I am a BIG reader.

**Dreamy sigh**
I love this bag.

I would use it on the weekends when I go visit my best friend. I would roll up my bathing suit and shorts and stick them in the bottom. Then I'd put in some capris and a tee, my current favorite book, and a movie to lend my friend. Then I would slide in my toothbrush and my lens case, and a pair of socks. I never go anywhere without socks.

And if there's room, I'd slide in my jumbly folder of guitar chords, and take my guitar too.

:)
Thanks for the opportunity!
