Love this pattern! So easy to follow and very functional. I even added Velcro straps on the sides of the unicorn purse so my granddaughter could carry her Barbie dolls. Thank you!!

This pattern was extremely easy to follow! The pictures are great and the explanations are very helpful! Very impressed with this. I have almost finished my purse. The part that takes the longest is getting everything cut out and interfaced. The rest went very quickly!

This pattern turned out great! It took me a little time & a message to the seller to figure out one of the steps but all in all it was pretty easy to assemble. I will make more for myself and for gifts. :)
