I started blogging so that my family could see my children and keep up with as they grow. I love to sew and used to blog about that here on occasion. Now, I blog about my creations at miymdiary.blogspot.com with a friend. Stay here for to read about my family and visit the other blog for more on sewing!

More sewing! Amy Butler Bags

I started buying Amy Butler patterns a few years ago, but had never made any of them. After making the cushion covers for my sofa (previous post), I felt like I could sew anything! So I make the Weekender Bag. The fabrics are nowhere near a pretty as Steph's at craftaholic.blogspot. Her bag is absolutely to die for! But those fabrics are no longer available, and I just went to JoAnns. Her bag is an Amy Butler fabric from a previous line. I made mine in one day. I had a deadline because I was leaving for Tennessee the next day and wanted to use it.
I took the supplies for the Sophia Carry All with me, and I made two while at my sister's house (one for her 11 year old daughter- maybe she'll get me a picture so I can post it). Mine is in an Amy Butler fabric from the Nigella collection and the other was in a home dec fabric that my sister had (it is cute).

The Sophia Carry All is somewhat big for a handbag, but it is great for church and toting all the things I need for the kids! This kind of gives a size reference.
