    This is the Margo handbag by Lazy Girl. It even has a zipper! (I hate zippers!) This was so easy to put in. I have made 5 of them so far. There are 6 large and 4 small pockets inside - and the two on the front. The pattern is awesome to follow - lots of color pictures. Aren't they cute? The third picture is my girlfriend Shari - I made one for her birthday. I cut hers a little larger.

    Beautiful job on your purses. I have the Margo Bag on my wish list. How hard are putting in the zippers for someone who has never sew anything with a zipper in her life?

    I just got this pattern, but I haven't made it. I like the idea of a zipper. Great work on yours!!

    I checked it out and was disappointed with the copyright restrictions.

    Very nice. Will have to look into the pattern. Shoot, I may have it. I buy the patterns and sometimes they just go to the someday pile.

    Do you mean that it says items can't be made for sale? If so, we've had fairly lengthy discsussions here on the board and ppl
    have googled, posted links to copyright law etc. The conclusion seemed to be that if a pattern, book or whatever was bought and paid for legally, then the pattern designer had no right to prohibit you selling the items made from their pattern, certainly not on a small scale (ie not factory proportions!) anyway. Hope this helps, I'll see if I can find the thread where the discussions took place and post the link here. :-D

    I searched the board for 'copyright' and found zillions of threads but here is a link http://www.tabberone.com/Trademarks/...ompanies.shtml posted on one of them that answers all the questions regarding what you can and can't do with items made form a legally acquired pattern. Hope it helps. And I'm so sorry that I forgot to say how much I LOVE the bags. Your fabric choices are great. BUt I don't DARE get into zips or my family may start expecting me to MEND stuff for them! :mrgreen: :lol:
