This pattern is not suitable for one way directional prints or fabrics with nap. This bag is cut with the top of the bag being along the salvege, so your design will be side ways. I do like that it uses the whole fat quarter. I wish this pattern just gave you the exact sizes to cut from the fabric, once you make one bag, you can jot down the sizes of the cut pieces and use with directional prints, however if using a fat quarter with a directional print, you will need to make a seam at the bottom of the bag. Very cute bag, was fun to make.

I love this handbag. It turns out so cute. I've made a bunch already and will be making a lot more. Very easy to make and a quick project. Good way to use up fat quarters that you wouldn't put in a quilt but look great in a purse. I've also made bigger one too.

This is a great basic handbag to learn from! I made it in less than 1 hour (I've subtracted all the distraction from the kids) and it looks super cute! I've got on and made bigger bags but using the same steps I learned from this ebook. I now make a "matching" bag for every dress I make my daughter. I even made a Minnie bag for going to Disneyland! A must for bag lovers!

My fat quarter handbag is super cute- And the author was always just a quick email response away when I had questions.

The Fat Quarter handbag was by far the easiest set of directions to follow even for the beginner! I have made several purses and they have all turned out wonderful!

The fatquarter handbag is a great ebook with very specific instructions that are easy to follow. The author answered questions prompty and helped me finish my project! It doesn't cost much to make and you can adjust the size of the handbag too! I made one bigger for me, and made one smaller for my 2 years old daughter! It is a great ebook!

This was my first handbag and it was really easy. Not to mention really quick. I made up four Easter bags for my daughters and nieces and they loved them! I would highly recommend this e-pattern even to the beginner.

I really love this pattern. It was the first tote I had every sewn and it couldn't have been any easier! The directions were very clear. I would recommend this pattern for even the novice sewist.

Love this. My 6 year old daughter (with help) made one to match her simply sweet dress. This ebook makes it easy to match a bag to the outfit you are making. A winner all the way.
