Sewywabbit, They don't stay terribly round when you have it full of heavy stuff, but so far it seems to spring back to shape when you set it down. I'm thinking of trying another one using some round plastic handles I have.

Your bag looks beautiful! You placed the pattern perfectly on the fabric to really show off the fabric design.

This looks like a fun project. Do the handles keep their shape when the bag if full?

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! This was a new pattern company to me too. Jan, I got the fabric at Hancock's. It was in their Home Dec dept. on a roll.

Your bag is wonderful and the fabric terrific! I was unaware of this pattern/fabric source also, so I appreciate your review. Do you recall where you got the fabric?

Absolutely adorable!! I have the Madison Bag, haven't made it yet, but I think I like this one better.

I love the fabric you used with this bag. KS has a similar pattern, which I have. I need to get on the purse making wagon again. Thanks for sharing your review and inspiring us all.

Love that bag and fantastic fabric choice. I really like Amy Butlers patterns and have several of them.

Very cute bag! Thanks for calling this pattern to my attention. It's interesting to see patterns from sources other than the usual companies.

That is a darling bag I love the fabric and cord handles. Your fabric choice is perfect. With your changes sounds like you really made this handbag yor own. Thank you for the peek at something so neat. (hallamark has nothing on me hahaha:)
