    Wow! What a great giveaway! I’m expecting baby #3 any day now so this would be perfect timing 🙂 My fabric choice would have to be Light Bright- Green with brown. Thanks for the chance!

    love this bag!! i would like the blue/gold (or is it lime green?) paisley that is pictured above ( the girl standing on a deck).

    Thanks for this great giveaway!!

    If I win…cross my fingers…I’d like the fabric on the last picture…with the bird an mail and stuff. 🙂

  4. 5 Kaye Prince September 25, 2009 at 10:44 am

    This is such a great giveaway! While I love Paula Prass and think this would look awesome in the blue version of this same fabric, I think I’d like one done with Almond Wispy Seedheads from Art Gallery fabrics. I think that would look beautiful!

  5. 7 Sarah September 25, 2009 at 10:51 am

    Almond Wispy Seedheads! cute

  6. 8 Catherine September 25, 2009 at 11:00 am

    I’m just in LOVE with that first bag with the bird in black. New one on the way has a bird theme going. This is an amazing giveaway!!! Thank you!

  7. 9 DianeY September 25, 2009 at 11:06 am

    What a cool bag! I think I’s choose Black with the print being Paula Prass’s Canopy stripe in Gray. Actually, I’d take just about anything from that line!

  8. 10 sara September 25, 2009 at 11:07 am

    red petite fluer is my favorite. thanks for the chance to win!

  9. 11 Jackie September 25, 2009 at 11:17 am

    I love the fabric on the first bag. I think I would pick one like that one.

  10. 12 Shannon September 25, 2009 at 11:47 am

    Soooo hard to choose. I love anything by Sandi Henderson so possibly Avacado Blossom Buds or Lime Dahlia! Do I have to commit to something right now? 😉 Thanks for the opportunity!

  12. 15 Kelly September 25, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    How very cool! I would want the fabric to be Lila Tueller’s Sprout Daisy Chain or Garland Leaf. Thanks!!

  13. 16 Michelle September 25, 2009 at 1:40 pm

    Could those be any cuter? My pick: Paula Prass, Black Garden Trellis. (It was a tough decision!)

  14. 17 Jessica September 25, 2009 at 1:42 pm

    Oh, wow, I’d love to win. I need a diaper bag this size.

    I think i’d either go with something sophisticated like this:

    Or something fun and bright from Sophie’s garden:

  15. 18 Lisa September 25, 2009 at 1:47 pm

    Wow, I love it! I’d want a brown with the light-bright green fabric.

  16. 19 Allie September 25, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    Those bags are just beautiful! It would such a hard choice! I think I would want one done with Lantern Bloom, but that black damask one is so pretty too! I hope I’m lucky enough to really have to choose!

  17. 20 Alicia September 25, 2009 at 2:02 pm

    I love Wendy’s work and your fabrics are awesome so this giveaway is fantastic! I’d love to have that bag in the Sweet Tooth-powder fabric.

  18. 21 Jess September 25, 2009 at 2:31 pm

    Oh pretty and you can never have to many bags! I think I’d go with Pink Confections Cupcakes because I love cupcakes 😀 and if I bought the fabric myself I’d just put it in a pile and admire it instead of make something with it. Great bags :D!!

  19. 22 Selina September 25, 2009 at 2:34 pm

    If I won, I’d pick a brown bag with Michael Miller’s straw ironwork fabric and give it to my new husband!

  20. 23 Rebecca A September 25, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    Beautiful bag! I think I’d go with the Moss Meadow Paisley fabric.

  21. 24 Jodi A. September 25, 2009 at 3:22 pm

    I think a brown bag with Sandi Henderson’s Pink or Spring Petal Party would be cute.

  22. 25 Elena September 25, 2009 at 3:59 pm

    cute bag! if i won i’d use one of patty young’s new flora & fauna fabrics.

  23. 26 Sarah September 25, 2009 at 4:59 pm

    Beautiful bags!
    I love the green and pink (maybe paisley?) one that you have pictured. I’m a teacher and don’t have my own room, so an “office in a bag” would be great.

  24. 27 sharla September 25, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    Oh I love these! All are so cute and messenger bags are my favorite! I would pick one with the black and white/cream print or the one with paisley- really I love all of them!! This would be perfect for me – I need this!! 😉 thanks for the great give-a-way-
    I’m adding this shop to my favorites on etsy. 🙂

  25. 28 Tootsie Marie September 25, 2009 at 5:41 pm

    SO FUN!!!! what a great bag & great giveaway! If I could design it, it would be made from Momo By Moda… Tweedle Dee-Tomato with a nice dark grey for the rest….. maybe a pop of that pretty green in there somewhere too….. like piping? Thanks so much for the oppertunity! 🙂

  26. 29 Mary on Lake Pulaski September 25, 2009 at 5:53 pm

    This is so fun! I would choose brown fabric and brown strapping along with Amy Schimler Animal Party in Square Tiles! It would be smashing!!

  27. 30 LAW September 25, 2009 at 5:56 pm

    I would take anything in purple — well almost. I like the Tillbrook purple. I also liked the Turquoise Retro Bows. But really…any cool bag that is free would be great 🙂

  28. 31 Donna September 25, 2009 at 10:24 pm

    Cute! I would lean towards a Jennifer Moore fabric. Maybe Melon Ranuncules

  29. 32 Little Munchkins September 25, 2009 at 10:36 pm

    Tough choice but I would love to see a messenger bag made up using Patty Young’s Gothic Flower in pink.

  30. 33 Julie September 26, 2009 at 6:29 am

    Carnival Bloom with brown would make me smile 🙂

  31. 34 Angela C. September 26, 2009 at 7:03 am

    I would love to win. My favorite fabric would be Michael Miller’s Spa Feeling Groovy. Thanks for the giveaway.

  32. 35 Wendy September 26, 2009 at 8:27 am

    I THINK I would pick Sweet Jasmine – Mist!

  33. 36 Beatrix September 26, 2009 at 10:15 am

    Oh, what a great giveaway. This is a very beautiful bag. If I was lucky enough to win I would definetly pick the Raspberry square tile for the outer accent fabric.

  34. 37 Kim September 26, 2009 at 12:16 pm

    I was struggling to pick one of the black/white geometric ironworks patterns, then I found: Peacock Paisley – Watermelon

    Love watermelon! Make mine WATERMELON!! Thankya!

  35. 38 Tootsie Marie September 26, 2009 at 1:46 pm

    okay, I am a dork….. you said right in there, one of the fabrics in YOUR shop! Sadly you don’t have the one I put in my earlier reply…. so I would like to change my reply to……… almond whispy seedheads with a lovely coordinating color 🙂 I think it is a beautiful fabric & I really feel happy whenever I think about what I might make with it 🙂

  36. 39 Allyson K. September 26, 2009 at 2:47 pm

    I LOVE Wendy’s bags! She is super creative!! I think I would love anything from the Just Dreamy Collection by Riley Blake.

  37. 40 Sharon Rotem September 26, 2009 at 3:09 pm

    Wow, what a generous giveaway!

    My choice would be a black bag with Robert Kaufman’s Market Apples fabric.
    I can already imagine the outcome …. how beautiful and fresh.
    Now all I have to do is keep my fingers crossed.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  38. 41 Sarah N September 26, 2009 at 3:26 pm

    I really love all of the bags above but I also love the blue dots from Wendy Slotbloom.

  39. 42 JEnny September 26, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    Blue Wallpaper by Art Gallery would probably be my pick. What a neat giveaway, thanks for the chance!

  40. 43 BRINA September 26, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    so hard to choose from your fabrics…maybe Centerpiece – Gray by Paula Prass? Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

  41. 44 Lois Grebowski September 26, 2009 at 5:50 pm

    Earth Moorish Tile designed by Patty Young.

  42. 45 SarahB September 26, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    What a wonderful prize from both of you! I’d never seen these bags before but now I really want one for myself!

    I love the Chez Moi Charisma and I can’t decide if I like the Blend Willow or French Blue more. (And you have the whole line on sale! I must get some!)

  43. 46 Lori September 26, 2009 at 9:34 pm

    Oh my – sooo many choices! I am having a hard time deciding… but I heart the best friend-peony one, maybe with a chocolate brown. Or the petal arbor vine with chocolate brown… oh, so many choices! I can’t decide!!

  44. 47 Maria September 26, 2009 at 11:38 pm

    How generous of you to give this!

    I’d love Jolly Beans or Pop Dots Blue.

  45. 48 Michelle Nist September 27, 2009 at 6:29 am

    What a great giveaway! I’d love the Blue Flowers & Butterflies by by Wendy Slotboom. SO many great choices!! Some wonderful designers here!

  46. 49 amessymama September 27, 2009 at 8:06 am

    I’d have to go with Earth Mod Blooms by Patty Young. Love that fabric!!

    Although, that first pic of the Par Avion is beautiful!!

    Awesome giveaway!!! Thanks for the chance!!

  47. 50 Colleen September 27, 2009 at 1:06 pm

  48. 51 willemijn September 27, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Nice to read your blog, keep on blogging!



  49. 52 Katie F September 27, 2009 at 5:41 pm

    I just love the messenger bag!! Blue Large Flower would go great!

  50. 53 Cecile September 28, 2009 at 9:53 am

  51. 54 Erynn September 28, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Sidewalk – Carnation
    I really need a new tote for a diaper bag. I just had my 5th baby, hate the diaper bag that I bought, and don’t have time to make a new one!
    I would be so excited to win!

  52. 55 Monkeydoodle September 28, 2009 at 11:03 am

    eeny meeny miney moe…you’ve got a lot of great fabrics to choose from- this is difficult. But my current fabric obsession is Wendy Slotbloom’s Lily Pond; I think I’d choose blue flowers and butterflies.

  53. 56 jan richards September 28, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    What a fun giveaway. I love the Glacier bloom home dec. fabric if
    I win. Thanks for the chance to win.

  54. 57 kim September 29, 2009 at 6:30 am

    I love the Deco Rose in Brown. How I would love a new bag!

  55. 58 Liz in Kansas September 29, 2009 at 4:06 pm

    I could seriously use a bag like that! I could also take all day to choose a fabric. LOL! I’ve fallen in love with Jelly Fruit in Cocoa, though, and anything that would go with . . . say, Pink Dumb Dot? That’s today. If you ask tomorrow I will have fallen for something else!

  56. 59 Karen September 30, 2009 at 7:52 am

    ohhhhh – how did I miss this lovely giveaway! I would ADORE to have someone make a bag for ME as I am usually the one pumping them out 🙂

    tapping fingers on desk….. which fabric would I like??? hmmmmmm

    Probably something Lantern Bloom or oh oh oh Valori Wells – SWOON!

    Great bag – thanks for the chance!

  58. 61 Cynthia September 30, 2009 at 9:17 am

    Hard to pick, but I would have to go with Micheal Millers Spa Feeling Groovy
