This is a nice looking purse. I really like it. I have always made simple bags and purses with no closures or zippers. Pockets but not zippers because these things scared me. I am so ready to try to make this purse. The instructions seemed easy enough and the Helpful hints are great.I can even see where you can add or take away some of these things. I will use this a lot. I am even super excited about trying the feet. A great idea.Has anyone who made this new at making this purse? Thank You

Have adapted this to make a training bag for my Labrador, with a removable elastic mesh and an extra front pocket. Its a great pattern and easy to follow instructions, thank you for sharing your hard work

I have made this cute messenger for my nece. She loves the bag. This pattern is so versatile. I put her name on the flap and added a pocket to the back yo put extra stuff in. I recommend this pattern to everyone.
