Love this bag! I too have purchased several purse patterns but yet to make them. Made purchases several years ago but stopped to try other things. Looks like it is time to go back and try some again. Lovely fabric for this purse.

I love your bag Melissa. I have bought several bag patterns in the last few months, but have yet to make one. I really love them. My questions have been asked and answered here. Thanks for the great review.

Karen, one of the reasons I use a heavy interfacing is to give the purse a nice, substantial "feel." The purse would probably hold up fine but would be much more flexible. Good luck.

Thanks for sharing. How would your purse hold up if you didn't use the heavy weight interfacing? I was thinking of using a cotton print and a medium weight interfacing. KK

Debbie, I have collected tapestry fabrics for years and this is the first time I have ever cut into them. I have lived in four states in the last six years and I have a stash of tapestry fabrics from all of them!

Sewin stuff (sorry I don't know your name)--if you like collecting bags my guess is that you will love sewing them! I've had a great time. Thanks for the compliments everyone.
