My daughter LOVES frogs! I knew when I saw this pattern I had to make it for my Daughter's Birthday.
I luckily found a remnant of fabric that is a tweed--it 's actually greener that it looks in this picture. It had some kind of thick rubber backing on it--PERFECT for this project. I didn't have to add any additional interfacing, although it was very thick to sew through in many spots. I also used a faux leather for the trim and handles. This bag looks store bought. I wouldn't guess that it was homemade--if I hadn't made it myself. :)
The instructions in this pattern are easy to follow. The bag sews together fairly quickly. It does have a lot of pieces to cut-out and precise cutting and sewing is required to make this bag. I recommend marking sewing lines for the fingers and toes. This frog bag is made from Vogue Pattern #8942. Included in the pattern are instructions and pattern pieces to make an owl bag, too.
Have a great day!
