    I cannot leave the house without my cell phone. I’m seriously addicted to it. I even get that “phantom vibration” feeling sometimes and think its going off in my pocket and its totally not. Its a sickness… Lol πŸ™‚

  7. Very pretty! I have to have my cell phone and diapers for the baby. I have actually turned around to go back for both of those things before. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. What a beautiful bag! πŸ˜€ One thing I cannot leave without .. mmm I’m going to have to agree with April, I have to have my lip balm on me πŸ˜€ (Though lately it’s usually the diaper bag, Ipad, Glasses, and Car Keys heh :D)

  9. Well, I already have this bag, but if I was to win this give-away, I would SO want to give it to a friend!! What I can’t leave the house without??/ Cell phone definitely. But sunscreen is becoming indispensable as well! That shouldn’t surprise you tho! Haha!!

  10. Diapers! Sad, but true. Soon I will have the youngest one potty trained and I will be FREE!!!! If I’m getting to leave without my kids then it would be my laptop so I can go to Starbucks and write (I lead an extremely exciting life). Thanks for the chance, I LOVE this bag πŸ™‚

  11. I always feel like I am lost when I forget my phone! I recently lost it and was just lost for a few days until I got a new one!

  19. What a gorgeous giveaway, thank you. I can’t leave the house without earrings and a lipsalve, and tissues.

  20. I am such a fan of the buttercup pattern, one of my favorites! And this fabric is darling. I never leave without my diaper bag…and kids!! Haha! One day that will hopefully change!

  21. I’d love to say I couldn’t leave the house without my car/house keys but i proved that one wrong last week locking myself and my toddler out in the pouring rain. I wasn’t very popular!

  22. I have to agree with the majority and say phone, funny to me how attached to them we’ve all gotten…thanks so much for a chance at such a beautiful bag!

  23. You have a great talent the bag is so beautiful! I am sure youer shop will be a success. I never leave the house without a bottle of water and my migraine meds.

  24. Gorgeous bag.
    I cannot leave the house without my keys. I always check because I don’t like being locked out. It has happened a couple of times but luckily family lives close.

      1. The best is when someone is having hair trouble and finally asks you “do you by any chance have a spare hair tie???” and then you get to say… “why yes, I do!”:)

  25. Well, I can’t leave home without my keys… got to have them so I can get back into my home. Also, I need my cellphone so if I forget keys I can call someone to come home and let me in. 😦

  26. Oh my heavens!!! What a bag. Ok, I can’t leave the house without a book to read. Seriously I can read anywhere!! Thanks for the chance.

  27. Beautiful bag!!! I can’t leave the house with my Chaptsticks — and yes, I made that plural! I have to have one in my purse, one in my wallet, and one in the car just in case. My Chapstick collection will fit perfectly into the bag! πŸ™‚

  28. What a gorgeous bag πŸ™‚ I can never leave home without a pen or paper in my bag – I never know when I might need to write something down to remember it

  29. SUCH an adorable bag! I love your fabric choices!

    I can’t leave the house without a project bag. I’m a knitter & crocheter with no patience whatsoever. If I have to wait for one person to order coffee ahead of me, I bust out whatever I’m working on. I just can’t lose those minutes! πŸ™‚

    1. thank you very much and thanks for commenting! πŸ™‚ And that’s hilarious! I have no patience either…wish I knew how to knit! Can’t whip out my sewing machine and start a project in Starbucks, although I wish I could sometimes! πŸ˜‰

  30. I try to always have some knitting with me, for when I have to wait a minute or more. Can’t just sit very well, so it helps pass the time in traffic, or at appointments

      1. It’s not rocket science. The biggest thing is not being afraid to rip it out if you’re not happy. If you make a mistake, just repeat it and it becomes a design element!

  31. I have been sewing for years and I love to hear about people who are enjoying learning to sew. Your bag is beautiful and beautifully put together. I can’t leave home without my stitching bag, there is always a magazine tucked inside it. I may have to sit and wait somewhere and will always have my stitching and reading along with me.

  32. Me!! Me!! I so love this bag!!

    I can’t leave home without my sunglasses, lipstick and keys.

    Thanks for such a pretty giveaway.


  33. I love the poppies! I cannot leave the house without umm.. well… i usually dont take much with me. πŸ™‚ I do usually have to make sure i have my drivers license.. maybe its time to get a purse? lol. Thanks for the chance!

  34. love it! thanks for the great giveaway! I can’t seem to leave the house without the kids, wait you said an iteam, ok my flip-flops – I live in them all spring/summer πŸ™‚

  35. Oh how I could always use another purse in my collection! I can’t leave without my lip balm….I will turn back if need be. However if I forget my phone I will keep driving. LOL

  36. Currently I can’t leave home without the backup diapers – it’s never a good thing if they’re forgotten, because that’s when you need them. πŸ™‚

  37. I love the bag. My mum would love the poppies!
    I can’t leave home without my 2 little boys at the moment (well, it feels that way anyway) but in my bag… probably baby wipes.

  38. I love the shape of this bag. And the fabrics are beautiful. I can’t leave the house without my point and shoot camera πŸ™‚ You just never know what you will come across a Kodak moment!

  39. Well the obveous answer is the cell phone, but other than that, I like to keep a small project in my bag for if by bad luck I get stranded somewhere at least I will have something to do.

  40. The fabric is so cute! I love it! I can’t leave the house without wipes – my kids are super messy and always curious about things on the ground!

  41. I can not leave the house without my phone. I am paranoid about what if something happened. Crazy isn’t it? I adore that fabric by the way.

  42. The poppies on your bag are fabulous. I can’t leave the house without a bag of some sort. I don’t feel secure without all my bits and pieces.

  43. Hi there πŸ™‚ your bag is so beautiful! I’d love to be in with a chance to win. I never leave the house without my phone. I’d be lost without it! Also congrats on opening your Etsy shop πŸ™‚

  44. Gorgeous – I LOVE the fabrics you’ve used. I’ve been trying to resist the urge to buy everything I love because there are so many great fabrics out there, and that line is one of the ones that I’ve not stashed because of it. Sigh.

    Anyway… something I can’t leave the house without. Well, that’s a hard one, since I’ve been known to skip the purse and just carry a debit card and some ID in my pocket. And the days I remember my cell phone are far out-numbered by the days I don’t. I suppose my keys are the one thing I don’t go without, but that feels like cheating, since who can go without their keys? I usually carry a book around with me, even when I’m pretty sure I won’t get a chance to read it. Does that count?

  45. That bag is, wow, great! I too cannot leave the house without my phone. And a tube of lipstick.
    Wonder if you used someones pattern for that bag?? It’s great!

  46. Seriously, that bag is darling! I make bags, so it’s hard to buy them from other people…but I love your fabric selections and the poppy is just perfect! Thanks for offering it.

    I try not to leave home without a bottle of water. I like to be drinking water all day long, so taking my bottle along with me ensures that I at least get a few extra ounces while I’m out.

    Thanks again.

  47. Is it lame to say that I can’t leave the house without my cell phone? I can’t remember what life was like without it…

  48. I can’t leave without my purse, but I also grab a bag to take to the store as it is not only environmentally friendly, it is much studier than plastic bags and easier to carry.

  49. I want in on this….what a cute purse! As far as what I couldn’t leave the house without….I guess my keys.

  50. I love that bag! poppies are my favorite! I can’t leave the house without my chapstick. Even if my lips aren’t chapped!!!

  51. I can’t leave the house these days without a sense of humor! Life’s a little crazy and it helps to keep things from getting to be too much. That, and my glasses. Some folks need them to read, I need them to drive.

  52. Oh such a beauty! Love the poppy attached. So cute!
    I can’t leave the house without mysunglasses. Even if there is no sun I might have to wear them in ceartain lights, otherwise I will get a headache.

  53. Wow,lovely and unusual bag.i never leave house without mobile phone,money,tissue paper and my daughter =o)

  54. I can’t leave without my cell phone. It’s the only thing I will turn around and go back for if I forget it.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  55. Gotta have my cell phone if I leave the house… no one usually calls, but if I forget it? Then someone is desperate to get a hold of me! The bag is lovely…. LOVE the flower accent!

  56. I can’t leave home without a stunning bag….with places for everything — oh! Like that one! Oh, I’d love to give it a new home! My hubby gave up on picking bags for me, cos I want the unique ones!

  57. I can’t leave my house without my phone; I’d never know what time it is without it. I love the fabric combination you used with this purse. Thanks for the giveaway!

  58. I definitely can never leave home without my knitting. You never know when you’re going to have to wait and I don’t want to drive people crazy with my fidgeting if my hands aren’t doing something.

  59. My reading glasses?, if I leave home without them, I’m in trouble! πŸ™‚

    I’d love to win your pretty purse.

    Regards from Western Canada,

  72. I absolutely CANNOT leave the house without chapstick, which always has a spare hair-tie wrapped around it. Both would fit into this lovely bag rather nicely….

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  74. I cannot leave the house with out a rubber band to pull my hair up with. Can’t stand it against my neck when it’s hot and my husband loves it long… so i wear a hairband around my wrist. need to get a cute one with a big flower or something on it…

  75. Chapstick and tissues. LOVE the fabrics you’re showing, if you see this what’s the one on the strap?

  76. Can’t leave without my cellphone. Fortunately, it’s one of those smart phones so if I get stuck having to wait to pick up the kids, I can access my kindle and read! Unless I’m land sewing or knitting something smallmouth- then, it’s my project πŸ™‚

  77. I don’t like to leave without my phone (for emergencies) or a knitting/crochet project in case I have a few minutes of down-time.
