WOW! It's time for my purse and I think you may have started something. I have a "small tote" but I've been thinking about that leather drawstring backpack style. YOU GO GIRL! I'll get my leather out and sit it on a chair for about a month and get inspired like you!

I have a purse which weighs a ton and has lots of gold hardware on it. I think I'm going to cut it apart and make my own bag with the hardware! I LOVE the fuschia croc. It's a beautiful bag.

You did it! What an awesome job, very inspiring. I love all those details, you can really tell how much effort you have put into the bag. And it will look great with your swap too :)

I dub your beautiful bag, "Hot Pinkness!" Gotta get some fuschia pink leather next time I'm in NYC. Your bag rocks with that leather!

What a nice bag! I have always admired this Birkin knockoff pattern, but never picked it up. Your hard work paid off very well. Thank you for the review.

LOVE your bag! That hot pink crocodile leather is fantastic, and the ultrasuede and embossed black leather accents go with it beautifully.

I am (sew) inspired by all your sewing with the wonderful colouring and now this bag. Full marks for perseverance and endurance. How do you find time to get so much done, and you go to work too ? You must go like the wind !

Definitely a Wow bag. Hard to add more - everyone has said it already. So thank you for the inside zipper pocket link and for the very thorough review.

Fantastic bag! I'm looking all over for this out of print pattern (Vogue 7982). If you're not going to use it again, would you be interested in selling it to me? I can be reached at
