    I love more than anything, that this bag does not have a drop in finish and has no tricky sewing! This bag goes together like a dream and oh so quickly! The instructions are incredibly clear and well laid out with soooo many pictures!!

  2. Daryl Perry

    I tested the larger version of this bag and it is a great style bag. Includes Christine’s signature phone pocket on this bag and other great pockets! Clear instructions make it easy to sew this Bodacious Bowler Bag. You can use this bag as a purse or an overnight bag or whatever you want to carry. It is a really nice bag.
