Great post, Stephanie and what a beautiful bag! What a wonderful daughter you are to do this for your mom.


You did a fabulous job on this bag-especially matching the prints--that's not always easy! It makes such a big difference though.


Wow Mama Pea. That bag is gorgeous! You cracked me up with your pocket comments -- you SHOULD be proud. You did a fantastic job!

(And no, haven't read the book -- heard it was trash -- part due to poor writing and part due to content LOL!)


Love this bag! I have been hunting for the perfect shoulder bag - maybe I'll have to try to make it!


That came out really nice! Love it! And the fussy cutting -- wow! Really nice touch . . .


Wonderful post and so informative. I love your bag. You are so right, it looks so professionally done! You should be proud! Haven't read the book. Don't think it would be advisable for a single, old lady like me. LOL
Glad you are getting some sewing time in and posting time in too.

What a fantastic bag Stephanie! Your fabric choices were perfect for this. That size bage is great with room for an iPad and I love the zipper flap to close it - so many bags that size are open on top. Thanks for the great review.

Thanks for the great pattern review! It does look like a great bag, and a nice size. Gonna have to check this one out!


This bag was so beautiful that I hated to give it away! But it really made my basket, so I kind of had to!! I was especially happy that someone I knew won it at our fun golf outing. It certainly was one of the favorites in the raffle. Thank you so much, Mamma Pea, and I am looking forward to receiving my own version of this beautiful bag!


So nice! It really does look professional and the fabric match was perfect. I'm glad to hear that Three Crafty Ladies is still going strong - it's such a nice little shop - maybe we'll get back there some day.

What a success! Your bag is awesome in every detail! I've made dozens of purses but never knew there was such a thing as a purse zipper you could buy either...and I love that Tantalizing Stitches shop. This pattern looks fab, especially with the top recessed zipper. One more thing...what a great mom and daughter team you make. It's so sweet of your mom to provide the fabric for the purses.

You always do such a nice job on your projects. And pick great fabrics too!


That bag is on my list of things I'd like to make. Thanks for the thorough review. I especially like the link to the purse hardware seller. I have marked that one!


I might have to make this bag! Since I am intimidated by bags and purses, that is saying a lot. LOVE the fabric :)


It does look professional! Love how you matched up the design on the pockets. So cool of you to help out with the raffle


Tula Pink just did a trunk show at my LQS, I love her fabric and I just made a vw pillow with the same fabric you used for your bag but in the blue. You can see it on my blog, I just came a follower of yours.

You are hilarious! Love the bag.


Do you think this bag is too big to carry around at market? Also where did you find the purse zippers? Zippit also? Thanks for the great review!


Love the bag! It looks like it was professionally made! I am sure it was admired by all.

The bag looks much more at home in Florida than it does in Michigan! Can't wait to see the others you make!
