How very cute. The fabrics are a great combination. Bet your daughter is very happy.

Your bag looks great! I've made a couple of these now, to use as a tote to the school where I work, and I also found the velcro to be inadequate - I've tried the magnetic snaps (from JoAnn's) and they work better...except that I usually load too much into the bag to close the top! I don't have a local source for the bases, so I've been using plastic needlepoint canvas cut to size, which seems to work fairly well. Looking forward to seeing your next one!

That is a neat bag. I love the inside pockets! I love the cow-hide print, too.

Wow, this has got to be one of the coolest bags for this pattern. I agree, Joan does go the extra mile with her patterns. I haven't made this bag yet but I am really inspired by your review!

So original and creative! I love the fabric combination. I've never made a bag before but after seeing yours I really want to now.

Great job. This was one of my first bags, too, and the clarity of the instructions really made it a lot less scary. Agree with you about the velcro, I made another version as a gift and put a magnetic closure on that one.
