One other question I had for you: did you use a stabilizer in the bottom? right now i have one layer or peltex but i'd like it to be much firmer so i'm going to make a removable bottom panel. any recommendations for something extra sturdy (to support my computer without buckling the bottom)?

I used a bottom insert. It was two layers of fusible fleece and one layer of Timtex. Flexible, but firm. For a computer bag... I'd try a chipboard insert. It's like cardboard, but compressed and very sturdy, while still being thin. Or perhaps 1/8" plastic? Let me know what works for you, I'd be interested to see what you go for.

I fastened up a great insert today - i stitched 3 pieces of peltex together and used one layer of template plastic. then i made a sleeve of fabric for it, it works perfectly! I also added purse feet to the bottom which i need to take pics of. Smiley

You did a lovely job on this bag!  I really enjoyed the link to the video tour also.  That is a great idea too.

I love the bag.  Thanks for the great instructions.  I liked the snaps on the side, and also the compartment for carrying needles.

Wow, first off, brava - beautiful cotton handbag.  Love the fabric and it looks very well crafted. 

I also wanted to say thank you on an instructive post of your process.  I have a feeling you do everything in a thoughtful and well constructed way...think I'll watch for your posts  Smiley
