I have wanted to make "Amy Butlers Weekender Bag" ever since I saw it on this blog post.
I fell in love...and then deep fear.
Everyone writes about how TOUGH it is to make...and they are sort of right.
But I used PINTEREST to keep track of ALL the tips and hint. It helped LOTS!!!!
As in all things...you just have to take it step by step.
I did the apple appliqué in honor of our FAVORITE destination.
Then I put a bird on the back because "Road Trips" make me feel free as a bird!!!!
I love my bag, and I LOVE that I survived a 30" zipper and all that piping.
I learned LOTS and hope it will be my companion on lots of fun trips.
One more sweet thing....the first dress I have made for our newest Granddaugther to be.
I used El's new fabric line, which is just as sweet as our baby is sure to be!!!!
I am off to use my new bag for the first time.
When I come back I will share the most creative sewing project ever!!!!
