Love, love, love your bag! I've had this pattern forever but haven't tried it yet. Going to have to break it out now.

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

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.

Great photo! And an even greater bag! Never made any of these but hey always look good. Love the buttons as feet!

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

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)

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!

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.

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!
