Average rating: (4 of 5) based on 4 reviewsPretty Little Bag with potentialReviewed by Toni (Verified Buyer) on 05/04/2016I thought the instructions on cutting out the pieces for the button tabs and the interfacing were confusing I bought the recommended interfacing and still ran short. You only needed to make the 3 flaps and I made 4. I found the length of the straps to be to short. The purse hangs too high if I place on my shoulder. I like the look of the button closer but the purse is a bit difficult to get into when having to unbutton. I had a terrible time getting the bottom piece to fit in as well. Least to say, The purse came out okay but I don't like it and I will not use it.2 of 3 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Great bag!Reviewed by Sharrone (Verified Buyer) on 12/21/2015This bag came together easily. Fun and pleasant to sew.
Love the bag. The shape and strap length are perfect. I usually have lots od trouble keeping bag scraps on my shoulder, but this works well.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?Superb bag!Reviewed by Pamela on 11/08/2014Love the easy to follow instructions and the versatility this bag gives me. Can't wait to make another one! Only one problem----my indecisiveness as to which side to use when I carry it!Was this helpful?Very cute and easy purse!Reviewed by Charlotte Moody on 08/10/2014I love this purse. It was very easy to make. My first! I found the extra firm interfacing a little tough to manipulate, but the purse needs the backing. I think the directions for the button tab is backwards. Need to check that.2 of 2 customers found this helpful.Was this helpful?
