Thanks guys Smiley

Nofury: I didn't know what Timtext was, so I used iron on medium weight interfacing. I ironed it to the lining because I find that if it is ironed to the exterior fabric it can sometimes leave wrinkles.

Jenny Bear: Your bag turned out great! I like the fabric that you used.

Nofury:  I've made other Amy Butler patterns that call for Timtex, and I've found that extra-heavy weight non-fusible interfacing is the same exact thing, only MUCH cheaper.  I think that I bought mine at JoAnn's.  Hope this helps!

Wow, I'm impressed. I wouldn't have even noticed the happy accidents if you didn't say anything - the pockets look great, like they were made to be that way.

As a beginner sewer I truly appreciate your patience with this bag!!!!!  It can get so frustrating when things don't go right or (if you're like me) the pattern is hard to understand.  But great job!!!  This bag is a testimony to persistence!  Enjoy it!!

Lovely bag! It looks perfect to me Grin. I like many of you love AB's patterns. One day I would love to make this particular one but I feel like I don't have the advanced skills it takes Roll Eyes. Thank you for all the pointers and tips, it will save me alot of grief in the near future. Awesome job!!!!!
