Thanks for your helpful review; I'll keep it with the pattern to refresh my memory when I sew it. Any chance of a photo?

Your fabric on your bag is very eye-catching. Love it!

REALLY CUTE! Love the fabric...I need some! :) I totally know what you mean about trimming the fleece- that is annoying!!!

Very cute bag! I totally agree with you about trimming the 1/2 inch off of the fleece - it is so fussy and wasteful. She really ought to include a pattern piece for it.

Your bag turned out beautifully. Thanks for the hint about removing the fleece from the seam allowances.

Very nice bag, love the prints and your helpful review. I am a huge Amy Butler fan, but I would be annoyed that they didn't just recommend creating a smaller pattern piece for the fusing.

I love this bag pattern. Could you show it on your body to see how big it is and can you show the inside of the bag as well?

A very pretty purse. You did a great job making the pattern come together.

What a great job matching your fabric at the seams. You got great results in your bag. Useful tip on the fabric / fleece / interfacing sandwich.

Beautiful bag, and thanks for the very detailed review. I'm a little intimidated by AB patterns based on other reviews - they seem like a LOT of work - but your experience and feedback really help!

Thank you for your tip on how to attach the bottom of the bag. This was my second Sweet Harmony Bag, I followed your advice, it made the construction much easier and it turned out nicer. Thank you!
