    I've made this bag and I love it... I agree with Karen.. read all the directions first and also, try and stay away from directional fabrics. (to much thinking)

    I have the pattern and have made the purse and love it. Several in my frienship group also have made it. The only suggestion I have is decide how stiff you want it before you make it because I used the fusible pellon they recommend and mine is not stiff at all, some gals like theirs to "stand at attention", I wanted mine a little softer so the fusible pellon worked for me just fine. It is a fun purse to make. Enjoy.

    That pattern does not look hard. I made my first purse in December for a Christmas present for my DD. It was fun to make and she loves it! Go for it and enjoy!

    Yes I like the smaller bow tote purse for my every day use. I probably will never buy a purse again. I love all the pockets. The larger tote is good for an over night bag. My daughter likes the larger one because its big enough to put her small son toys in also. she always keeps something in there to occupy her son.

    I made this purse just this month. This was my third purse I ever made. You just need to read and reread instructions before you start cutting and sewing. Easy to make mistakes.
    I thought the pattern could have had a couple more pics. of certain steps but otherwise a good pattern. If you need help when you start just ask.

    I have made several and so has my daughter we have given them as gifts and have several for our selves.

    They are great and they can be washed. I just love them and you can make them to go with any outfit.

    Once you make one you will see how easy they are.

    Good luck :thumbup:

    have you seen the cute little bags from the Moda Bake Shop

    http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/10/...ochie-bag.html

    I made some of the little ones for my granddaughter's girlfriends for Christmas. She filled them with small gifts and they all seemed to like them lots, they are perfect of their phones or IPods.

    and best of all, they are so easy to make

    Just so pretty, love the color combinations you used. I bet these went over so good for Christmas, and they thought "what a great grandmother". Thanks for sharing

    Of course you can do it, Momto4. It is darling. Just think, you could start making Christmas gifts now and be way ahead of the game. Do you need my address?

    Address would be great. Johnnie Fellinger rt 6 box 6091 Ava Mo 65608. I am going to make my Granddaughter who is into sports a t-shirt quilt, just trying to figure out how big I want it so I know how many t-shirts to ask her Mom for. Take care
