    I think it looks great! I love that pattern. I've made a couple and have another cut out. I had to put it aside a couple of weeks ago, but think I'll find it and put it next to the machine to remind me to do it this weekend.

    its so quick and easy to put together which is good as I have my 4 yr old grandson staying with me so need to be able to make things with him around.

    I love it and do plan to make another one..how much did you enlarge yours? I always like to make matching eyeglass cases and cosmetic bag, etc to go with my purses when possible..but the lining looks good in the bag too

    I enlarged it by 115%
    next one will be in a totally different fabric... I have an old leather coat that I pulled apart ... and I'm going to try give it a firmer body as well... not used to anything this light :)

    I'd love to see your leather one - and hear how it was to sew. I have the same, and would love to turn it into a purse. We also have a local leather shop where we can buy remnants for next to nothing...but I've often felt too afraid to try it on my sewing machine.

    Please let us know when this new one is complete. And I love that the lining matches. Makes it interesting :) I sure need to make myself one of these!

    I know what you mean about it being light. On my first one, I used washable suede from Joann's. It was a rolled upholstery fabric. It's a bit thicker and was great to work with. I really like it and get a lot of compliments. Here's a link to the picture.

    Question on the snap closure-Do you need to snip a little hole for the prongs on the snaps or will they just push through the material? Nice bag by the way!

    I used my seam ripper to start the hole. That way, it wouldn't end up too big if I pushed too hard.

    If you have an older sewing machine, like a Kenmore or Singer in a cabinet (1940's -1950's), these old workhorses will sew about anything with no damage to them. Just make sure you use the proper needle.

    I like it! Nothing wrong with the lining being the same as outside!

    Your bag is wonderful!! I have one that I keep in my big purse all the time, I will pull it out when I just want to run in somewhere and I don't want to carry everything. I just throw my wallet and keys in there and I am good to go!! :)

    I made the smallest button hole I could so the fabric wouldn't tear more than necessary, I then open up the button holes like you would for a button, but I put the prongs through.

    Cheers!
