This is really a nice bag. Yours came out good. Just the right size to be used as a camera bag. I like the larger ones for daily use, such as the Miranda Day Bag. This one sorta reminds me of a messenger bag. Just made my first Sassy up and about to write a review on it.

Thanks for the heads up on the fusible webbing idea!

This is really cute. Thanks for the tip about turning the flap - I hate cutting the fabric and I don't mind leaving a bit of a seam open as I'm always topstitching everything anyway.

There are now a lot more Lazy Girl Designs bags: http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/bags.html, and she also sells acrylic bottoms for them now, so they will be more stable. I really want to make one of these. Thanks for the review.

I saw many of these made up at a quilt show last weekend. They made me want to make more--so neat, so cute, so useful!

I just made three of these and couldn't be happier. The directions are good and simple- the only thing I did differently was to use a zigzag to attach the elastic to the folded edge. The straight stitch just took the stretch out of it. I also attached the front flap from the back for better visibility rather that take a chance on "catching" all the layers. I ran out of craft fleece on my third one, so I used Warm and Natural -- turned out fine. Next one I make might get an applique treatment on the flap.

Duh on me - I see the web address in your review. I'm really not that clueless, just haven't had coffee yet. :-)

All you need, other than fabric, is a piece of hook-and-loop (like Velcro) for the closure, 11 inches of 1/4" elastic which controls the main compartment, and some craft fleece to give the bag body.

what a cute purse! I love it. I've never made a handbag before. What types of notions and special skills (if any) are required for this?

This looks like a pattern I could use. I HATE carrying a big clunky purse. But a cute small one like this would be fun-also a good way to use my leftover fabrics. I am always looking for gift ideas, and this looks like a good one.

Thanks for calling this to my attention! I like my purses small, too, and this seems like a wonderful little pattern.
