    I was reluctant to try this, but so many of you posted such great pics of the ones you did and you all said it was easy....AND IT WAS. Here is my first attempt, but it was so easy, I am sure I will make more, I see birthday gifts for others in my future!!! Can't wait to go fill it up before work today.

    I got my pattern on createforless.com, and paid $7.99 plus $5.65 shipping, totaling $13.64....some got theirs on connectingthreads.com and paid $9.00 but not sure what the shipping was, however, the last time I checked they were on back order there. So, I guess, it depends on if you want to wait or not....

    Yay!! I was hesitant to try it too, and was amazed how easily it went together. There were only like 2 spots where I got a little stumped, but I was able to figure it all out in the end. :) Yours is very pretty!!

    Cheers!

    Pretty, pretty - can't wait to start on mine. I finally got all my fabric and fusible fleece. I am still undecided as to use the button closure or a magnetic closure. Someone on the board mentioned she would use the magnetic one for her next tote.

    I went with magnetic on mine because I felt it would stay closed better, with the fabric closure it can come unhooked very easily as the bag moves around. If you go with the magnetic, a good tip I found online was to do tiny button holes for the holes of the prongs, that will really make sure they do not fray. Some people just use fray check, but I had a hard time trusting the fabric would tear beyond the fray check and just tear too much. The buttonholes were easy enough to do. :)

    Good luck!

    I'm tempted. They do look like they would be very practical.

    Thanks for the advice on the magnetic closure Rachel. I've never used one before so guess I will do a little research.
