There is no day like a snow day!!
I made this bag with this pattern and yes two of the fabrics are hers and remarkably similar to the pattern picture. What was I saying about being original? Sigh, I LOVE her fabrics what can I say. This was the first Amy Butler pattern I have tried and it was wonderfully easy to follow and a quick project.
Being on a roll I made the Bird Bag below, and I really like how it turned out. I have developed an affinity for anything birdy. I hope to make a few more to sell.
All cinched up
One more makes three, the tote below is made from fabric that I have had for a very long time and would just look at once in a while. I embroidered the pocket using the fabric print as a guide. The fabric is a favorite piece that I had not been able to bring myself to use until now. Don't ask me why I just really like it, I have several pieces that I have an odd attachment for, most of which are from the quilt shop I do occasional samples for. I recently organized my fabric (I will try to post pics of that later) and found it was like looking at a scrapbook of projects past. As I was sorting I would come a cross fabric and remember it was from the first quilt I made or a leftover piece from a wall hanging for a friend. I have pieces that are from my mother-in-law or that we bought together at the International Quilt Festival-How fun was that Judy- Then there are those fabrics that I bought just because. I am at a good point now where I am trying to use what I have. I have decided to make a scrappy quilt using pieces from those "scrapbook" fabrics and will add a piece of this one to that collection.
