Finished! Guess what? I love it! The brilliant part, I don't really have any complaints about it either! Of all the Amy Butler bags I have made so far, I think this one had the easiest, clearest instructions. I really love these fabrics together, though next time I would center the pattern on the main body, but I was using up scraps, so oh well.
My only suggestion to those of you who haven't made it yet, is to carefully pay attention to the placement of the magnetic snaps. The wording on this step is a little funny, and I could see how you could easily mess it up. Also, don't expect for the square corners to perfectly push out either. If you look at mine open (above) you can see the bottom corners are pretty round. There is just too much thickness for it to be perfectly square.
After all my frustration with last months bags, I was really pleased at how quickly this came together and honestly it only took a few hours. The longest part is probably cutting it out and interfacing everything. I liked it so much, I plan to make another!
