I LOVE this purse. I have made several and added even more pockets. It is GREAT to carry everything in. I will be making more!
This is one of my most used patterns. I have lots count of how many I have made now. Such a quick and easy sew.
I'm a novice at sewing handbags so I'm always looking for easy patterns with lots of photos and explicit has it all! I'll be looking at your other patterns also!
LOVE! I have made 4 of these for gifts and everyone loves this bag.
LOVE!!! comes together quickly and very customizable :)
Very nice. Made my friend a bag with this pattern and she still uses it years later.
I was a little worried about how this would hold up being made just from cotton. It has exceeded my expectations. the bag came together well and my boys have loved having a special bag for school. I made a modified larger version for myself to carry for work. the only thing that I would change would be to reinforce the bottom so that it would stay square. I tried a few things after the fact, but would have had better results if it was built into the construction from the beginning.
I love this So much room, easy to make and I get so many comments from people asking where I bought Instructions are clear and concise.
So cute! I made this as a gift for my niece and she loved it.
I made this bag for my daughter to use as a diaper bag. It is a wonderful pattern and went together easily.
Thank You soooo much for creating this site, I buy from here frequently and have never been disappointed.
Great pattern! I am pleased with the results.
Nice, easy to construct bag but a little on the small size. Other than that, the pattern was effortless to put together!
I made the large size messenger bag to use as my son's diaper bag. A lady actually walked up to me and wanted to buy it right on the spot! It was monogrammed with my son's name, which happened to be the same name as her grandson, and she loved the bag! I was very flattered, but couldn't sell it since we were out shopping and on to have a way to carry his stuff! However, I've made several since then for baby shower gifts, and they are always well received! Great pattern!
Love this bag. Easy and functional.
made this for a friend and she loved it. Very easy too.
I have made this bag three times now, and it's great. I used deco weight fabric for the purses, and for my diaper bag, and I appliqued on the flap. Super easy, and I love the results. I would reccomend!
Wonderful bag pattern! The author is super in answering any questions about the pattern, too. Great for a beginner!
Great fun and easy bag to make. My 9 year old even makes them with a little help and instruction. Of course they are a hit as gifts with her friends.
Made this for my sister and she loved it and it was very easy to make!
Made a perfect backpack for the kids the loved them
I just finished my first messenger bag and i am so proud of myself. I made the small size for my first one and it turned out great. The directions were very easy to understand. When I had a question she was very quick to get back to me with the answer. I can't wait to make hte other two sizes. I have never made any kind of bag before this. I highly reccomend these instructions.
