    I just finished making this for my daughter. .She loves bags/purses.. I took a picture of it before I gave it to her! She was thrilled. It was such a simple and quick pattern.. Very sturdy bag... I want to make another one now for me this time !

    I love this bag! You did a wonderful job. Your daughter will love it.

    I have a yard of the floral fabric in blue and aqua and I don't want to cut it!! I just pet it every once in a while.

    I'm thinking of making the Aqua and Blue material into one for me .... I will have to go back to my LQS to get it!

    I'm thinking the one you're thinking of is Amy Butler's Weekender Bag....it doesn't really need that much unless you're matching patterns I think though.

    Very pretty. I love the bag. Infact I bought that pattern and forgot about it so I'm glad you shared yours. Now the search will be on to find mine. I even bought some similar fabric for it as yours. I'm glad you said it was simple and quick. Hopefully finding it will be the same. :thumbup: Thanks for sharing
    Also you make a great model :D

    Super looking bag, aberi!! Love the fact the opening is right under the arm area. In some countries, this bag would be a godsend because of the wallet snatchers on the loose. Snazzy and classy and great photo of you! Thanks for sharing!! :D :D
