    Nice job...I made a large diaper bag and doubled the rule for more strength.
    May the scrap fairy visit your sewing room often

    I made the top with batting. I then sewed the lining rst to top on both sides. I turned it inside out. I then made a band for the top and sewed it on the top and bottom putting the handles when I sewed this seam. I flipped the band over and sewed it from the lining side. I then sewed each side inside out. The pattern I followed did not show how to finish off the band after you sew the side seams. I think I will just do an overcast stitch on them. I do need to do a couple more to make the top look a little neater. I am just trying to think of different ways to do it. Hope that helps.

    Nice job on the purse with the handles. I have the snap bag pattern on my "to do" list.

    Thanks for the information. I think people might like them if they weren't so noisy.

    I agree - my directions showed the ruler like the first suggestion above. I could hardly open it when I had them in the other way...
