What They're Saying

Daryl Perry

When I first saw this bag's flap, I knew I wanted to sew decorative stitches on it. I was so pleased with how it turned out and it sold right away! Then I got a request to make another one in purples for the same woman who bought the first Fiona from me, and I stitched decorative stitches on the second Fiona too. I love the shape, size and features of this bag. It's such a stylish looking bag. With Christine's thorough directions, you can't go wrong!

Really enjoyed making this bag. Easy to follow instructions. & if I had a problem just followed the pics on the computer Piece of cake. I have made 3 of these bags 2 for myself & one for a gf. Now I just found Sugar & Spice pattern. Again lots of pockets inside & out. Love your patterns.

I chose to make the Half Moon as a good size for a quick trip, and am blown away by how professional it looks! As always Christine's instructions leave nothing to chance and I had no trouble understanding them. I think I may have to go back and make the Quarter Moon too now!

Every interpretation of this bag that I have made has elicited a rave response. It is a smart looking, well-sized, useful bag and can take on any number of personalities depending upon fabric choices. The construction is genius and directions very clear. Just go step by step to a great outcome.

I love this pattern and it goes together very quickly. It taught me the value of paying attention to the test print squares. but seriously one of the best patterns that I have worked with. I like the detailed picture portion for the first time sewing the pattern together and the fact that you can print only text at the end for a quick reference. The labels are handy if you are doing multiple bags at the same time.  I get many complements on this bag.

To be honest I cut this pattern out and looked at all the pieces and thought no way. Then Chris came out with her video and I thought, I so can do this. Video + pattern are a steal. Christine's video kept me laughing while making this wonderful wallet/side bag/clutch. The construction is sheer genius. Bravo!
