Ta Da!

Here she is. My Amy Butler patchwork bag from this book. The weather is atrocious today, so the photos are not what I would have hoped for.


The lining is a wonderful matching fabric I found at Joann's. I could hardly believe my luck.

I "only" broke two needles in the process and got the seam allowances wrong, but I'm very happy with this. Do click on the images if you want to see more detail.

Pin It!
