Thank you for the great review. I want to make this bag, but can't find the pattern. I even wrote to, and they told me it was no longer available.

Thank you for the great review. I want to make this bag, but can't find the pattern. I even wrote to, and they told me it was no longer available. Update: I got a copy, thanks everyone!

Lovely handbag and thanks for the suggestions. How did you make the bag smaller?

I love your bag and the Raku touch makes it really unique. I tried to download the pattern but had difficulty and when I tried again, alas it was gone. I hope they make the pattern available via, "Handbag Heaven". All of the bags that have been reviewed are really beautiful. Makes me jealous!

What a clever twist on this bag to use the pendant and strap! Great purse!

Patti, your purse looks great! :-) I like the strap and the raku pendant. Very helpful information you provided. I have got to make this purse.

Great review. I love all the details on your bag. It looks like you have a workshop from all the photos!

I love you bag you design is really cool. There is so many different versions of the bag here. Maybe Trudy could create a gallery of the different versions.

Beautiful! You are very resourceful. :-) I, for one, never get tired of seeing another Nairobi review. What a creative bunch we have here.

Your downsized version is great. I like everything you did. I also tried to download it, but it's now gone. Not sure I'm up to all of the work, so it's ok!

Turned out beautifully! Thanks for all the details in your review. If you coated the pendant w clear nail polish (or something), would that smooth it?

This bag is awesome !! I love it!! Perfect christmas gift !! Sadly Hotpatterns isnt offering the pattern anymore. Is there anyone who would be willing to share their copy? I want one if these !!

Great little bag!! Love that raku, too. Really neat fabrics when put all together, inspiring. Thanks for an excellent, idea-filled review and photos.

What a helpful review! And aren't you resourceful? Your old jeans and dress have recycled beautifully.
