Before our vacation to Disney World, I sewed a bag. It was my first one I ever made, I cursed a lot. I'm not sure that I will ever make another one but this was did serve it's purpose and it was an awesome bag nonetheless. It is an Amy Butler pattern that my sister shared with me. The only adjustment that I made was making the straps longer so it was more like a messenger style. I put in FOUR zippers a snap, and a liner in this sucker! WOW! I was ready to be done with the project about half way through. I found the directions challenging at times. I read ahead, pinned and then reread before I sewed. There are some mistakes, but I can live with those!
This bag will continue its great service shopping at the flea markets this summer! BTW Disney was FANTASTIC! I am so going back some day!
