    Smile Baggalista Bag - have you made one?

    I have run across this pattern a couple of times and it is so cute. But it has lots of zippered pockets and interior pockets. Has anyone made one of these? Is it terribly hard to make? Is the pattern easy to follow? Some of these patterns have such weirdly written directions, it is hard to understand them. I want one but hate tp pay the $12-$13 for the pattern plus shipping if it isn't gonna be very sewable. Would appreciate any hints or thoughts if you've made one.

    I haven't but that looks neat. After making my daughter the Professional Tote I may get brave and try this for me.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I made one of Studio Kats purse inserts and it was a project I would like to forget. It took forever and I finally threw it in the trash. The Professional Tote (I made three) was a breeze compared to the purse insert.

    Looks really neat, trim and a practical bag when you look at the website, but intricate to make!
    If you give it a whirl, let us know how it turns out!

    There are several PDF files on the site that show how to do some of the pieces. Shouldn't be too hard.

    Since I'm going to be working on my Dear Jane and helping hubby with a kitchen remodel you may get to this before me. Be sure and post pics if you do it!

    This does look like a great bag. I hope someone has experience to share about it

    I've done some Lazy Girl patterns but haven't tried Studio Kat. Really need a bag to travel with-now that we're retired & have started traveling!

    I get the Studio Kat newsletter. She states that her patterns are not easy or beginner type patterns. She said when she began designing purses she decided to try and design bags that are like more high end designer styles. While I think her extra photos and explanation are bound to be helpful, I don't think her patterns are for the faint of heart.

    On the flip side I have made several of Joan Hawley's Lazy Girl Design bags. They are very well written and easy to follow and always turn out great.

    Just my humble opinion.

    I think I'll sign up for her newsletter too. I've made some of the lazy girl bags and like the way the patterns are written also. I found another of the L.G. patterns in my sewing room while cleaning out a drawer yesterday - one I haven't tried. I think I'll make it first. I'm not usually too faint of heart, :-) but I may watch some of the videos and study for a while before spending so much for the Baggalista pattern.

    i've madea the Baggalista. It was a challenge, but turned out beautiful. Directions on finishing bag where lining, outside and straps go together was a challenge. the pockets on the sides, are quite small and really not too useful except for keys. My cell doesn't fit in either side pocket, so if I made it again, I would either enlarge or omit. My pictures of it are on other computer, so I can't send them
