I made one of these a few weeks ago and it was super simple. The instructions were clear and the photos were superb & plentiful! :) It's thanks to this pattern that I had a "light bulb moment"... flannel for the brilliant! THANK YOU for that little tip. I've just recently started making bags and that was such an excellent idea for my arsenal.

This has been a fan favorite! I love the style and possibilities. I have enlarged it, shrunk it, embellished it...and I love choosing several fabrics for each one!

I've already made 3 and plan on making more. Great instructions. I did however change some steps to my preference and thankfully this pattern will let you do that.

Absolutely wonderful pattern. I've made two bags and they look great. The instructions are clear and concise. Even a beginner could make these.

Fabulous pattern! This was my first time making a "real" handbag and I found the instructions & accompanying photos really clear. Nobody believes I made it myself :-)
