I made a purse! I've had this pattern laying around for a long time now and finally decided to do something with it! I haven't sewn anything in over a year (too much going on in personal life) now I've got the bug again!

I'm not sure what you mean - but it didn't dawn on me to make mention of changes I made  Cheesy

I used a heavy, fusible interfacing - the pattern called for a sewn in interfacing (and of course didn't tell you what type of interfacing). And on the ends I used the interior fabric for a contrast.

I did notice mine looks a bit different than the pattern photo - I attribute that to the heavy interfacing I used because it makes it stiffer and was a bit of a PITA to deal with so I probably wasn't able to 'pinch' in areas hard enough.

Thank you so much

I have only ever made one bag - is this pattern fairly easy?? or is it for experts only.

That's a tough call for me to tell you the truth. I'd say it wasn't terribly hard, but since I'm a novice it took me a very long time - probably 12 hours or so. It was easy to understand the pattern.
