That is a beautiful bag. The quality of the materials shows even in the pictures. This is a classic bag that you will be able to get use of for a long time. Very impressive bag and I'm very glad you reviewed it. Oh my - I just looked at the pattern picture. Who would have thought such a professional, elegant bag was made with a pattern with those pictures! Double congratulations. (Not that those pictures are necessarily bad, mind you, but totally different style than what you achieved.)

Great bag! Very chic and professional. I'l bet that nobody believes that you made it. You made a great purse out of a pretty different looking pattern. Great details, thanks for sharing your construction details.

Great looking bag! You made this look so much better than the picture on the envelope. Nice job.

It looks so good! I would never have recognised it as that pattern.

Your bag is fabulous, love all the embellishments, beading etc. Great all round. Enjoy !!

It looks great! And you are one brave (and patient) woman. I once made a bag from suede, and broke my brand new sewing machine. My bag turned out OK, but your stiching is fabulous!

Very, very stylish raw materials, Carol, and they'll make up into a stunning bag. Can't wait to see it! -Lily
