I love this bag! I needed a big bag with some pockets and this definitely ticked that box. I was especially happy to find the handle is fully wrap-around for greater carrying strength as I do my Christmas shopping. Easy to follow instructions+some Christmas canvas and poplin fabrics yielded the perfect bag for Christmas shopping - I've got several compliments on the bag from fellow shoppers on the practical styling of the bag. It was so quick and easy to make with just the two fabrics that I'm now looking for the right fabrics to make the charm and stripe versions for after the holidays.

With plenty of complementary fabrics, this bag is a stunner. Do know that if made to the pattern specs, it is huge. Even cutting off a couple of inches from the top and sides, it was extra large when finished. No problem, though. Just loved the fabrics together. Used reds, blacks and grays.
