I used this tutorial here: http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/september2010/StyleStitches.pdf

This is the first purse that I would have to say turned out just as I wanted. It was also my first time using a stabilizer. I did though change the pattern a bit, by not adding the zippered divider.





c&c welcome.

What a lovely job!! I have this pattern dowloaded and waiting in the wings actually.  What was the difficulty of putting this pattern together?  I'm a little intimidated  Undecided

I agree, you did a fabulous job!  I made this bag for a swap and I found it relatively easy, just time consuming, the pictures were really handy, and I had NEVER sewn a purse before.

I've seen a lot of these and really didn't care for them but it must just be the fabrics I've seen elsewhere because I love this one!  Great job!!

This is a great pattern, this Amy Butler "Blossom Bag" pattern could be made over into the "Evelyn Purse"  with some modifications. Wink  It shouldn't be to hard. I love both bags. They are both great!!!! Also I do think what fabric is used changes the whole look.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

This pattern was actually quite easy to sew. Easier than what I thought it would be.

Definately! I saw the evelyn purse and want to try my hand at that one as well. I see how similar they are.

When I saw this fabric I knew exactly what I was going to use it for. I agree that the fabric makes or breaks a purse.

It looks great.   I am on the lookout for a new bag and came across the pattern this week.  Now I just need to find the right fabric, love what you used.
