I made my sample bag in April 2010. The pattern is Amy Butler Birdie Sling. I modified it to make a shorter bag. I used the same cotton batting for interfacing that I use in my quilts and it worked great. It has certainly held up very nicely all year. I just love it! In general, I don't like to carry a bag but this one is perfect for my road trips to Greensboro.
In July 2010, I cut out the fabric I had to make 5 bags but have never gotten around to sewing them. This week is the week to get started.
It is May 2011
May 21: Started cutting out and attaching the interfacing. Some have a special product for just his purpose & some have batting.
It is October 2011
Oct 14: Finally sewing! Got tired of seeing that large stack of pieces sitting around forever in the way.
Oct 16: Finished 4 bags & all but the last step on the last bag.
Oct 17: DONE!! Oh YES!!
