Further thoughts to downsizing this bag...I'll bet it would work to take the pattern pieces to a photocopier and just scale them all down by the same amount... Why not?!

GORGEOUS! You always have such great fabric, too. I'm in a small town in Eastern Canada, and the stuff you get makes my teeth sweat. (laughs) The fabric, when combined with the pattern style and your skilled craftsmanship, creates a FAB designer piece! Airedales makes a good point - sizing it down might be a nice idea. I can see it with a slightly smaller body and longer straps. You can carry off the size, but for tiny folks it might 'wearing US' as my Mum used to say. (smiles). The trick might be in getting the calculations right vis a vis the radius & circumference. Anyone have any thoughts on how it would look downsized, please?

Beautiful Bag! I've never thought I would make one, but yours makes me want to. You are so creative with your fabric choices. It's like each piece is so different, but the patterns and colors go together so well, they just blend like one. Don't know if I'm saying what I mean. Anyway...Beautiful!!

Yours is so much more interesting - and gorgeous - than the picture on the front of the pattern envelope.

So CUTE! I love this bag too. And how clever of you to paint the zipper. I wonder how difficult it would be to size it down a tad....??
