i just finished this bag the other day, and i love it! i'm officially an amy butler fan now. although this bag was NOT quick to make, the instructions were straightforward and simple. which i really appreciated. even though i've been sewing since i was a kid i still get confused by the pictures and jargon on standard patterns. anyway, this is the best purse i've ever had and on top of that can easily double as a diaper bag. fun, fun.
