Size not accurate
Appleseeds descriptions and photos are not very accurate based on
recent orders. I'm increasingly disappointed.
I like a purse just large enough to hold essentials, so the 11"
seemed perfect, however the purse actually measures 14' wide
by 10" high which is bigger than I would buy.
The straps appeared caramel colored in the catalog photo and
they are dark brown which I don't like.
Bulky and a little heavy for a fabric purse - advertised as "lightweight".

Nice bag, but had imperfections in the stitching.
I liked the look and feel of the bag, however the stitching on the quilting had several flaws including a visible knot with threads sticking out from it. Also, the leather trim had loose threads. I spoke to a representative in your customer service department and made arrangements to return the bag and have a replacement sent to me.

The color combination was terrible
The quality was probably fine but the color combination of Azalia and rest/orange was ugly. I didn't look any further than that. I returned it!

I like this bag
Shopped far and wide for a summer bag and finally got this one, and it is a perfect size for me. Not too big but with room to rumble around and find things. The material it's made of is sturdy, the color is pretty, topstitching neatly done. I got the Island Periwinkle which leans a little towards lavender, but that's fine and it's a color I will wear with most everything. The inside lining is plain but light colored with the usual pockets, a zipper one on one side, two slip pockets on the other. One of the slip pockets is larger than the other which is helpful for grabbing out the telephone. Top zipper opens nice and wide to get into the handbag.
Anyone want an orange cat? My new handbag hadn't been sitting on the bed longer than a couple hours before she clawed it and broke a thread on the back. No fault of the handbag, fault of the animal. At least it's on the back.

The size of this purse was just what I was looking for. The one con are the faux leather straps. Maybe if they were darker brown, they would look more like leather.

Bright and fun for the summer! Durable and lightweight. Great quality!

This is possibly the best purse I've ever owned. It is not too big or too small. It is light weight, zips at the top so things don't fall out when the bag falls over in my car, and has several pockets to help organize. I like the ring on the outside because I attach my keys to it.
The leather handles won't wear out like cloth would. It is perfect !!!

Nice, but the trim is not real leather
This bag is a nice addition. It looks good and wears well. The straps and trim on the navy bag are a lighter color than they appear in the photo. I wasn't sure they were real leather and when I discovered a small but not too noticeable slit after I'd used the bag, my suspicions were confirmed. This is not REAL leather. Regardless. I like the bag and can easily repair the small slit.
