Purse turned out cute. Have gotten several compliments on it.
This is a darling bag! The pattern is a breeze if you know how to sew, I wouldn't recommend it for a first time sewist as basic techniques are not explained (which is not a pattern fault as far as I'm concerned), but if you know the fundamentals and have made anything from a pattern before it will be simple to follow. I absolutely love the size, it's just perfect for an everyday purse. My large checkbook wallet fits with plenty of room to spare for other essentials, yet it's not a tote size which is too big for me to carry around all the time. The possibilities for changing it up are endless - I added additional pockets inside and used several different fabrics for the straps, top band, lining, pockets, etc. It's really gorgeous and I will make many more of these I'm sure.
I love this handbag! The directions are so clear, which makes it so quick and easy to make. I've made 2 as gifts for friends and they LOVE them!
