I love this!! Great job with all the details. I'm even more impressed now that I read that you "thrifted" all the pieces for this. Besides your valuable time, a basically free purse!

Great handbag! I love the upcycled leather details mixed with corduroy. Makes it a casual luxury bag. Nice work!

This is a standout! The leather and corduroy mix is inspired. Looks much more stylish than any of the pattern pictures.

What a lovely bag! That's a great idea to recycled thrifted items..There are a lot of leather jackets in local charity shops - now I know what I could do with them :)

Great-looking bag! Love the leather accents. I'm glad piecing the handle worked out.

Absolutely awesome! I love your bag. The pleats. The corduroy. Everything is wonderful about your bag. Now I want to make this pattern. Thank you for the very good review.

Thank you for the wonderful review, your bag turned out marvelously! Very RTW and stylish. That you used so many thrift items makes it that much more awesome. Great job!

Nice! I love that you recycled leather; so many people are afraid of it. You also did a great job adding the extra details. Thanks for the thorough review!

Amazingly thorough review and so many extra's you put into this. Love all the thought to cut apart a Coat and make this stunning purse from -- the extra closure is such a great detail. Thanks

The leather accents look great and I love the pleats on the front. Looking forward to seeing the messenger bag.
