She gave me a copy to review and I really love the result! My bag turned out so nice and it is just the pop of style I have been needing. I am not the best at accessories for myself- my kids, yes, but me, seriously lacking on the cool accessories!
I am loving the chevron trend, aren't you? Obviously Vanessa's bag fabric inspired me! The handle is my favorite part. It's really unique and fun. The bag is made to be a tote or you can fold it down to be a clutch. I am not much of a clutch person (maybe because I usually have to be holding hands of small children and dragging them into the grocery store) but I love the thought of using it as a clutch while out on a nice date with the hubs.
The pattern was simple to follow and I certainly learned some new tricks. Her method of putting in magnetic snaps is really fun and easy. The bag is a nice size too- not too big but big enough to hold my essentials plus some extra.
Guess WHAT?! Vanessa has generously offered to give away 1 pattern to a nice Gingercake reader. Awesome! SO...tell me your favorite accessory this fall (like a scarf, bag, boots, etc.) and I will choose a random winner on Thursday, 9/29/2011 from the comments.
