Yay! I finally finished making the much talked about Amy Butler sling. It took me two days to finish this, (and that is between cooking, shopping and everything else)…not bad.
The fabric I used is Treetop Fancy Aqua by Tina Givens.
Here's a close up.
I had to customize this bag a little by adding a zipper pocket and magnetic snap (the original pattern had just twopockets and no snap closure). I never use a bag without a zipper pocket and I would prefer my bag to close shut instead of things falling all over the place.
The only thing I disliked about this pattern is there are way too many things to cut. But once it's done, it looks sooo adorable.
And the thing I really love about this bag is it’s huge. Yes, and I mean HUGE!! Which means I can carry loads of stuff (I usually carry a truck load of stuff in my bag, bigger bag = more stuff = happiness).
I have a few more bag patterns which I may end up sewing pretty soon. But now that classes have picked up, there are many unfinished projects vying for my attention.
And before I go here's a pic of some super cute Hydrangeas from my garden.
