    I am really into bags right now and this bag is fabulous! I have some buttons that would embellish it quite nicely.

    Love this cute bag! If I were to win, I could see myself making many of them! Looks like they would be fun to make as well as easy. I think the bag would be great to make for the church bazaar.

      Hi Kim – Thanks for comment on this post and good luck to you in the giveaway! Yes there are a lot of wonderful and amazing things made with Jelly Rolls but this item is not made with Jelly Rolls. Just wanted to let you know. This Prairie Rose pattern by Fig Tree Quilts uses straight yardage.

    Very cool bag. Does it have pockets inside? I like the roseprint idea. Of course,once I get a pattern, I have fun with my quilt scraps, too. Patchwork would be interesting, too.

      JR2G says:

      Hi Claire – Yes, this bag has a pocket on the inside and if you wanted you could put another on the other side. Patchwork is an awesome idea! Just using up some scraps and making this bag with patchwork would look great – especially with jeans!

    I love the pattern for the totes! How cute! The fabric is so welcome amidst the snow and ice we’ve been experiencing where i am! Wouldn’t it just be great to hang it up over the window and imagine that the flowers are already blooming?

    I absolutely LOVE these! I’d make one for myself (or two or three…) and they would be darling birthday and Christmas presents as well. Would love to be a winner since I’m incapacitated for two months after having surgery and would love to at least be able to sew something.

    Angela says:

    This bag is great. I’ll be unemployed as of tomorrow. On the positive side: winning this kit and the free instructions would provide me with a (mental) comfort project – beats mashed potatoes. 🙂

    Lovely bag! I love jelly rolls because they are color coordinated. I’m not good at coordinating colors, and jelly rolls and layer cakes help a lot.

    What a beautiful bag. I really like the idea of a bag I can empty out on the bed, toss into the washer and dryer and load it up again. It would also make a great diaper bag for my granddaughters first baby.
