I made this bag and everytime I set it down, it opens up sags and stuff falls out of it. It is only useful to me when I am carrying it. Has anyone else had that problem? It is cute, I'll say that, but very frustrating. I used a quilting weight cotton for both the outside and the inside.

Don't know how I missed this, but your bag is terrific. Love the fabric, whatever it is, and the size. Looks like you could stow a small child in there! Thanks for another useful and funny review.

Congratulations on your bag. It really does hang nicely, particularly for it's size. It doesn't look as big as it is when on the shoulder. Handy as well as nice looking.

That puckered leather look is fabulous - and thank you so so much for such an informative review with lots of good pictures - this is a perfect overnight or weekend getaway bag.

I was smiling throughout, between your leather with a selvage and your magnetic closure sucked to the feed plate, but I see that you let nothing hold you back from making the most lovely bag! I adore a huge bag and yours looks very elegant. Lovely, Lily

Great bag!! There's a lot of times I need a big bag to carry all that "stuff".

Nice! I was kinda wondering what you'd do with that fabric..... A purse is perfect! I have this pattern and need to put it closer to the top of the pile! Great review! Thanks for sharing.

Your bag looks great in your review, and much more gorgeous in person! You did a fantastic job on it, especially with the lining. It will have many uses!

A great bag and a great review! What fun. I looked at this pattern on the website, but I don't know if my machine can handle all those layers!
