I have been eyeing this bag ever since I started purchasing pixie faire patterns 5 years ago. I finally purchased the pattern and I love it! I had a bit of trouble figuring out the top strip assembly, but once I did, it went together beautifully. My second one was much easier. I will be making more of these for sure. Thanks!
So cute and stylish. I have made 6 so far and love them. Thank you for a quick, easy to follow bag.
This turned out exactly how I'd hope. It was fun to mix fabrics to create a bag and it's easy to embellish the sides of it. I used fabric to make a little wider straps for one and mesh sides for another. It's a really versatile pattern.
I love the bag I made from the pattern. I used the bottom fabric to also make the straps rather than ribbon. I didn't like the idea of covering the cardboard with tape so I made another bottom and sewed it in when stitching down the seam between the bottom fabric and top. It was a bit difficult with the cardboard but I liked the result with the fabric on the inside. I plan to make two more as Christmas gifts for granddaughters!
Sew easy to put together. Holds a lot of " needed" items for a day out having fun.
