Love the print on your bag and your review is very informative. I love the Amy Butler bags, but have not yet made one. I'll keep your review in mind when it's my turn to make one of these fantastic bags. Thanks!

What a great bag - I'm a BIG fan of big bags. I love the fabric and definitely see why you had to have it.

Wow that is one big bag! I actually have this pattern and really meant to make it, now I'll have to pull it out again. You really gave some great advice on interfacing, thanks for a great review!

GREAT print! I like the fact that you've added the structure and support for your bag via the Peltex. (I'm not familiar with that, so I'll have to check it out. ) Otherwise, I would think it would just turn into a big sack, and the cool shape would be lost (and even the print, to some extent). As for the model, I thought that WAS you! How come nobody ever mistakes me for a stinkin' model? :o)

This bag turned out fabulous. I'm sure you just sold a few more patterns for Amy Butler.

How cute is that bag. I simply love it. Thanks for drawing me to this pattern. I must make myself a betty shopper too. I prefer Peltex too.

Wonderful bag, Cidell, and your fabric is fantastically eyecatching. I think you were destined to have this bag because you *do* look a teeny bit like the model on the pattern cover. Lovely, Lily
