Your zebra version of the now famous Nairobi bag looks very cool,great detail on the piping. Hope your daughter enjoys the bag as much as I do mine.

Very cool! I was just thinking as I sat down to the computer that I needed to work up my Nairobi bag one of these days... ;)

Gorgeous bag! Thank you for the details on your design process :-) Do you mind knockoffs, haha!!

Beautiful! Every detail, every modification is perfect. And the piping and zebra print definitely add the pizzaz you were seeking. Although difficult to engineer, the zipper with the ultrasuede pull is both practical and chic. How could your daughter not love this designer bag? This one will be difficult to top.

I looked EVERYWHERE for the download... i cant find it... can anyone help?!!?!

Avril, I can't send you a message as you have it blocked. Use the advanced search button here on PR and put in ''Nairobi Bag'' and you will find a link to the topic where a lot of members have requested and received the pattern download. Unfortunately, I didn't save it on my computer or I would send it. The pattern is no longer available from Hot Patterns and the only way to get it is from someone who saved it to their computer. HTH!
