Oh, that is just too cute. Even the back looks great. I hope the recipients properly appreciate these. You don't look anything like Norm; I expect they'll yell "Leslie" instead.

I just read your review on the Amy Butler Weekender Bag--actually, this comment is more about that project. You're right that the detailed instructions can get "distracting." But you've definitely encouraged me to make one for myself! Your panda bag is very cute!

Leslie, you've done it again. It's adorable.

Absolutely fantastic. You creations are so professional!! Nobody can ever judge what you produce to be "loving hands at home". Please don't stop sharing. You are an inspiration and your attention to detail is to be admired.

You are a genius! So very cute. Thanks for the pointers. You have an eye for detail. When you walk into Interior Fabrics, I think they most likely say, "Ka-Ching!"

Leslie, this is soooo darn cute! I can't tell the difference between yours and the original version. I'd swear it was the same bag.
