Gorgeous!!! We should have a club for everyone who has completed this monster!! I have my second one half done- Bet you couldn't get that I am at the part where it is to be sewn together!! Procrastination!! I am not looking forward to the wrestling match.

What a gorgeous creation. I've been holding off, but you may have convinced me to get this pattern and give it a shot. I have a ton of stashed home dec that needs a purpose. The fabrics you used are perfect for this.

You did a fantastic job on this labor-intensive bag. Whenever you carry it, you'll be so proud! Excellent review, too.

Your bag looks SO nice! I still have my pattern unused in a pattern box. I haven't mustered up the courage to sew it yet!

Beautiful end result. This bag has brought many a seamstress to her knees! Your review is well written and insightful. I might try it now.

This is a stunning bag with your fabric choices and matching of designs. I'm with you on revised instructions -- what's the point of 'insert this'? surely they won't print new patterns without rewriting the instructions?

This bag is so wonderfully beautiful. I love the fabric you chose. I never tried to sew a purse, may be I should give it a try. I saw that you also venture in an area I do not feel competent at all... the underwear world. Humm may be I should give it a try.

I'm blaming you for my strong desire to buy a new pattern (I've been trying to cut down on that a bit lately). This is such an incredibly cute bag--so well done! I love it :)

I've seen this bag so many times and STILL love it. You have a great eye for color/pattern combination and this bag is so eye-catching. Wonderful job!

Great review, beautiful bag. I hope this pattern doesn't bring me to my knees, as Quilt2quilt noted in her comment. Your review will be extremely helpful as I attempt this challenging pattern.

Then I saw it and sympathized :D Also can relate to the "doesn't make my but look big" comment :D thanks for the smile, and your bag really is cute-and the cosmetic bag too!
