Lynn, This bag is just great! Even better in person but the detail shows nicely in the photo.

Thank you all for the nice comments! This was my first review and it wasn't as intimidating as I thought it would be!

SheBear0320 - I cut the straps 2" wide and used a medium weight iron on interfacing for the entire width. I folded it in 1/2" on each side; then I cut a 1" strip (yellow), interfaced it as well, folded it 1/4" on each side, laid it over the center of the wider strap and seweed along each edge. It was easy to do and the best part was no turning a tube yet all the raw edges are enclosed.

Amazing bag -- looks very expensive. Did you use anything in the handles or are they just 2 layers of fabric.

This is one BEAUTIFUL bag - I bet you would have to pay one heck of a lot for it in any upscale store- I am totally in love with it.

Such an interesting approach to machine embroidery. I've been watching this on Sewing With Nancy. It's so cool to see your version!

Very pretty. I seen this bag/embroidery completed on Sewing with Nancy. Nancy had as a guest Eileen Roche who showed how this bag was machine embroidered and put together. You did a great job.

I went to the link to look for the Kit you bought, but she's not got anymore. What all comes with it? Every time I look in the gallery this is the bag I drool over! :-)

Nicely done, great bag!

Great bag!

The straps are attached rather ingeniously! A placement square is embroidered on the bag, then the strap is added and sewn down in a square with an X through it - several times so it's very strong. Then the fabric covering is placed over the strap and embroidered. Everything is firmly held in place.

Lovely! I like the choice of interior fabrics, too.
