    Oh, Watson, you did an incredible job on the handbag! Like everyone else, I think it looks so professionally made. But I can understand your frustration with it. I have made a number of purses, but never with cork. Some designers are better than others in describing the process. It sounds as though this designer was very thorough. Who is the designer?

    audsgirl...it is Blue Calla Designs.

    I think the pattern was fine and the videos were great, but I may have chosen a purse that was too advanced for me for a first try.

    I found that I had a lot of extra cork fabric left over, as well after buying to the pattern requirements.

    I love it. I bet it's really light too. And I like the Homemade. It makes it look more professional

    Your bag is beautiful and congrats on sticking with it and finishing. I make bags and it can be a trial. I'm still looking for that perfect bag pattern.

    Wow! What a gorgeous result! I love the look of the warm cork and the fabrics you picked together. Congrats!

    Thanks, Watson. I'll have to look for it. It's probably too advanced for me, but yours sure looks nice.
