Great bag! Here's the link to the pattern pdf and instructions, since they're no longer on hotpatterns and the pattern is out of print.

Your bag looks really classy. The sleek lines without embellishment are just great.

Your bag looks terrific, Leslie! Love that embossed suede.

What are the odds....I bought that same upholstery stuff for a LaRue bag. Much as I admire your taste, I'd hate to turn up at a White House function carrying the same thing. You did a great job. Laura Bush will be green with envy.

Leslie, that bag is fabulous.

Your version of this bag looks great and has actually made me reconsider my opinion of this bag (I wasn't a fan if it). Your choice of fabric was well made. Best rendition I've seen from this pattern.

Leslie - I love your new bag! It's really going to be a hit with your niece!

Yep - as soon as my leather and nailheads arrive from Ebay I'm gonna start on mine! Your niece will love this Leslie - my daughters want me to scale this bag down to a 10 year old size!

Another cute LaRue. These bags are, obviously, a hit. Great job.

Great looking bag, Leslie. You're niece is lucky, and she'll love it!
