This has to be the most fun I've ever had making a purse! Not only is it SUPER easy to assemble, but the endless fabric possibilities are crazy fun! I've made these for teachers end of year gifts, family, friends, etc. The size is perfect and honestly, if I take one out to use it, I usually end up selling it!

This bag turns out awesome everytime with every fabric and every color bias tape. I have made this for my best friend, myself, mother, grandmother, and 2 for a friend to give as gifts, Each one I made had a different fabric combo, from country, to mod, to hippie, to super girly pink, and they all turned out love love this pattern, super easy. I also added some pockets to the inside and it was super easy to add those in.

The instructions for this handbag were outstanding! Each photo helped me make sure I was doing the right step. The end result is a beautiful handbag and I can't wait to make more for my friends. They want one, too!

I just received a sewing machine for my birthday and this was the first sewing project I ever attempted. It was so easy! The purse turned out fabulous, and all my friends and family can't believe I made it myself. The best compliment was "That looks like you could buy it at Macy's!" The instructions were very easy to follow, and the pictures made it a breeze. Thanks for a great first project!

I can't even tell you what a blast I had making this purse! I LOVE that I didn't have to sew all the squares together and how the bias tape covers up the fact and adds such a unique flare to it. The size is awesome...boy can you stuff this bag full! The pattern was seeeewwww easy to follow and well written. Too much fun!
