    I thought this was a cute bag for a little girl. Was wondering if it could be downsized for smaller girls (I have 5 grandnieces ages 1 to 7 and they all want what the other one has…)

    I saw this yesterday on their website and tucked it away for future reference. The purse is perfectly adorable and your fabric picks are perfect!!

    Can you tell me the size of the finished product? I have been looking for something that I could make for my daughter to carry around her American Girl dolls and I think this would be perfect. AG has one, but why pay for something when I can make it myself and personalize it, right? (
    I looked at the pattern a bit and I am sure I would have to widen the gusset but I am not sure about the rest.
    Any help would be appreciated!
