This was made from a u-handbag pattern (great place to buy from btw). The instructions were easy to follow, and this bag sewed together very quickly – it was fun to make. The size is awesome – not so deep that things will be lost forever, but large enough to carry the essential needs for a day out. I love how the metal o-rings just add so much to the finished bag. Off to my sister to use with her little lady – now I think I need to make one for me!
