2 of 3 completed

I made this bag using Amy Butler's Birdie Sling Bag pattern. It's a gift for my sister in law, who hopefully has her hands too full with brand new little Nate to read my blog right now. It's going to be hard to part with this one, but I'll definitely make one for myself very soon.

It's a very sturdy bag and looks like it will hold tons!



It is lined with some great interior pockets. I'm also going to make a few zippered pouches to help keep the little stuff a little more accessible.



If you're interested in making this bag, check her website for a pattern correction. One of the pictures is printed wrong and there's a correction on her site. Don't ask me how I know - let's just say there was a glass of wine and a seam ripper involved!



The fabrics are from Amy Butler's Midwest Modern line.

That is so cute! I've only sewed one of Amy Butler's bags, and it was the easy one. All the others still scare me. Great job!
