    I was just wondering if anyone has ever made one of these, and if so, was it easy? Did you enjoy making it? And, does anyone have pictures of their finished bags.

    I am kind of intimidated about making purses. They just do not look that easy. So, before I go out and spend money on a pattern that is too difficult, or make so many mistakes that I waste fabric, (I do not have much of a stash to be able to afford that kind of a mistake) I would appreciate any input.

    I have not seen this one, however have made lots of purses, I don't like the patterns with zippers so I change them to suit me. Good luck

    Hi Emmy,

    Yes, I have already been to that website. Though it is a brief explanation of the purse, I would still have to make my way through the instructions. Some bags seemmm easy enough, but when you start reading the instructions... ugh, too hard. Oh, and also, I just wanted opinions from the message board.

    SewingSuz, I also do not like to mess with purses that have zippers. loll. That is why I figured the little Sassy Bag would be easier to make.

    This bag looks pretty simple and if you need help there are several of those on here that can help. I have a lot of faith in you to make it. In the days of home ec class we made these and they were not that hard to do. Just jump in and try it you will surprise yourself!!!

    Hey if you decide to make the bag You can PM me and I can help!!

    Thanks, Jade! I will wait and see if JoAnn's has the pattern - I have a 50% off coupon I can use. Have to wait for the 10th though...that is when the coupon is good for.

    I will add your name to my buddy list so I will not forget if I run into trouble or problems once I get the pattern.

    I looked at the website and I think it is fairly easy. Go for it and show us pictures. You can do it.

    I have made this bag twice. It was fun.

    It came out great both times. The instructions were very well written.

    Thanks ladies for the support (sue and suz), helps in the confidence department.

    Hey Jennie, Good to hear that you have made not one but two of these purses and that the pattern instructions gave you no issues!

    The directions for the Lazy Girl bags are usually pretty clear . There is also a Yahoo group for Lazy Girl that you might like.

    I will check out the Yahoo group for the Lazy Girl again. I went previously and did not see a whole lot there. Maybe I was in too much of a hurry. Thanks!

    Actually, I just noticed that I was on the wrong website. I think I was on her blog. I joined the Yahoo group and it is pending. I hope to be able to read what others have to say. Should be informative and fun. Thanks again.

    Hi, I just wanted to add my 2 cents....the first purse I ever made was the Miranda Lazy Girl bag. I was a bit intimidated but you just can't beat the excellent directions coupled with the detailed pictures that are included in the instructions. They detail every step. I'm sure you will have no problem following. Be sure to show us a pic when you're done!

    Hey Kim,

    These Lazy Girl bags are actually nice looking. Thanks for letting me know that the instructions come with detailed pictures. Pictures help out soooooooooo much. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what they are saying... but if they show a picture along with the words, then it's more like, "Ahhhhh, I get it now!" Okay, I feel quite confident after reading everyone's thoughts that I can just go ahead and get the pattern with no worries. I will definitely post a picture once I have finished my Sassy Bag!

    I have made a lot of purses. Not this particular one. The first one I made was a little bit hard. I don't like to read directions. I found the directions different to read than a quilt But once you do one purse it seems the others are all easier.

    I have made several with that pattern. Have given them all away so no picture. I love Lazy Girl patterns. Easy and fun. Word of caution about JoAnn coupons. My latest ones say (in the fine print) cannot be used on any pattern. Good luck with your project.

    If you watchs the video on this site she shows all of the steps to make the bag. Seems very easy.

    I have made one and it was very easy. It is on the small side, which for me, is perfect. I really love the small size and the strap is long for a cross the body bag. I don't have any photos of it to post.

    I made several gifts from her Wonder Wallet pattern and the instructions were very explicit and easy to follow. I'm glad to be reminded of her patterns and made aware of her website.
