    The Footloose is an easy breezy bag to make, with incredible Wow factor. The vertical zipper in front adds a lot of interest. The handles are a nice length and the long strap gives it versatility. The shape of the bag is probably my favourite feature. My sister wants to steal my first bag from me and another friend really wants me to sell it to her. I have another bag cut and ready to sew already, so that may solve that problem. Haha!

    This is a really nice size tote and I love the unique shape. It was a pretty quick and easy sew!
