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!

I love that bag... the shape, fabric, your sewing! I just ordered that book from Amazon. It's supposed to be here tomorrow. Can't wait to look through it and drool. I love your lining fabric. You are a talented gal!

I kept sewing 1/4 seam allowances and it was driving me nuts. I totally love all the fabrics. :)

Cute bag! I love it when I come across the perfect lining. That fabric really works with the AB fabrics.

It's wonderful! I have that book and hope to try this eventually. It might be a bit too advanced for a beginner like me. :)
