This was my first time sewing something besides a quilt, and I'm so happy how it turned out. These bags are my style, and I love that I can pick out my fabric. I just bought the fabric to make 3 more bags.
Love the book. Don't order for your Nook. You will not receive the pattern pieces. You will have to go somewhere you can print on 17x22" paper and it is expensive. Better off buying the book itself.
One of the BEST pattern books ever, and I have sewn for decades! As another reviewer pointed out - purchase the actual book. The patterns are worth it! Excellent photos, excellent pattern pieces, excellent instructions! I have made several of these and have made them over and over again. If you have purchased other Amy Butler patterns individually - these are even better! The directions are easier to follow, there are fewer pattern pieces, and they do not call for nearly as much interfacing. Treat yourself! You won't regret it!
