Thank you for your tip on how to attach the bottom of the bag. This was my second Sweet Harmony Bag, I followed your advice, it made the construction much easier and it turned out nicer. Thank you!

Beautiful bag, and thanks for the very detailed review. I'm a little intimidated by AB patterns based on other reviews - they seem like a LOT of work - but your experience and feedback really help!

What a great job matching your fabric at the seams. You got great results in your bag. Useful tip on the fabric / fleece / interfacing sandwich.

A very pretty purse. You did a great job making the pattern come together.

I love this bag pattern. Could you show it on your body to see how big it is and can you show the inside of the bag as well?

Great review. I think your purse is very pretty - love the fabric and contrasts.

Very nice bag, love the prints and your helpful review. I am a huge Amy Butler fan, but I would be annoyed that they didn't just recommend creating a smaller pattern piece for the fusing.

Your bag turned out beautifully. Thanks for the hint about removing the fleece from the seam allowances.

Darling bag!

Very cute bag! I totally agree with you about trimming the 1/2 inch off of the fleece - it is so fussy and wasteful. She really ought to include a pattern piece for it.

REALLY CUTE! Love the fabric...I need some! :) I totally know what you mean about trimming the fleece- that is annoying!!!

Your fabric on your bag is very eye-catching. Love it!

Thanks for your helpful review; I'll keep it with the pattern to refresh my memory when I sew it. Any chance of a photo?
