  1. I love yesterday's floral denim bags and look forward to making several as gifts and then, based on the sneek peak at tomorrow's bags I plan to make a few for myself. I love the new denim and have been really enjoying this week. Thank you.

  2. So far my favorite is the tote bag, but I'm looking forward to the bed runner as well! Love these new denims!!

  3. Well, I think the small zip pouches are great and very useful too. Now, after seeing this Shore Bag, this is my absolute favorite and I am not a bag woman. I love it.

  4. Bags….any kind of bags and the fabric bucket coming tomorrow is great!!! Will need to make several of those for sure L)

  5. Yesterday's pouches are my favorite so far; I'm thinking of making a bunch in advance of the holiday.

  6. My favorite is the shore bag. But I would have to make some zippered pouches to go inside and I love bed runners. I guess I love them all!

  7. I adore today's Shore bag! (And I can see a million uses for tomorrow's buckets too…) Thanks for the chance!

  8. The Denim Shore Bag is my favorite project so far! Love the coordinating fabric you used with the denim.

  9. I love the Becca bags!!! Also the fabric bags tomorrow are just too cute!!!!
    Great fabric line!

  12. The Shore bag is absolutely ny favorite, in fact, I have the pattern and am about to make myself one in fabrics I already have so I can use it as a super cute diaper bag when I keep my super cute grandbaby. But I would love love to make another one in DENIM! I could use it to carry all my blocks and EPP goodies with me to my treatments. Oh how I love Denim! Be still my heart!

  13. The Shore bag looks exceptionally durable, and would be a great gift to a friend expecting when made out of denim.

  14. The Shore Bag is my favorite! I've eyed the pattern before now & love it made with the denim. The small version would be my cup of tea. Off to place the pattern on my wish list!

  15. Awesome hop!!! My favourite denim project is the Fabric Buckets, Those are cute and handy to have. I'm going to make a few for my daughter to have for her college dorm!!

  16. I really like the Denim Shore Bag you posted today. To me, this would make a delightful all around bag — the combination of denim with the ruffly gathers and bows, along with the contrast fabric, really make a stylish bag. I love it.

  17. I really love the Denim Shore Bag. I would love to make one or ten of these. Thank you for the chance to win some fabric. Have a great day

  25. I love love love the little zippered bags…perfect for so many uses but especially my quilting supplies while I am on the go….thanks for the chance to win such beautiful fabrics ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. I love the denim fabric buckets! I have made similar ones with old blue jean legs, but the printed denim is so much cuteness, I have to make some.

  27. Love the Little Zipper Bags — have made other things from Lazy Girls Design patterns and love their stuff.

  28. I really like the denim buckets – they'd been great for my teen daughter's bedroom and the chaos of makeup, nail polish, etc.

  32. Hard to pick which project I like best, they are all so cute. But I like the tote bag best ! I have been eyeing the denim collection for some time, so I hope I win !! Thanks for the contest.

  33. I think the sneak peek from tomorrow is actually my favorite! I can see those adorable little denim buckets being used all over the house – I would even make a larger version to go around my crocks in the kitchen that hold my utensils. When it gets dirty, I can just throw it in the wash! I can even see using them as reusable gift packaging.

  34. The fabric buckets for me.
    Denim has such a lovely structure and is perfect for storage things. Who doesn't need a whole range of colours of bucket for their bits and bobs.

  35. I love the denim shore bag! so cute! I think I need one since I live by the shore! And I always have lots I need to carry in my bag!

  36. These denims are so pretty. I love the saturated colors on the solids and the patterns as well. Your projects have been fun too. Looking forward to the denim fabric buckets. K-

  42. My fav, week 2, floral denim bags for cosmetics or whatever. I think cosmetic bags made if denim would be great because they won't stain as easily. Love love denim because it is so practical and durable. This pattern could also be used to repurpose old worn out jeans.
