i really do not consider myself sewing proficient,
more like a crafting proficient sewer.
over the past year, i have bought 4 different amy butler bag patterns and i gave 2 of them to heather, with the mindset that they are really cool and i just do not think i could make them.
I love bags!
any and all kinds and am so enticed by the fresh designs by amy.
the last time heather and i were out, we were in a fabric store that had a full rack of all of amy butler's patterns and heather convinced me i could make this one.
ok so it is a diaper bag, but the style is so versatile who cares what i carry in it right?
yesterday, while i was supposed to be working on layouts, i was mojo-less.
i sat with the creative blahs for a while and then pulled out the pattern.
i ransacked my stash for any fabric i had in yardage (i usually buy fat quarters which are only 1/4 of a yard) and began reading and cutting out the pattern.
i was feeling creative and that is such a happy place for me.
i modified the pattern,
i left off the cell phone pocket and the pockets on the inside and made it super simple.
2 and a half hours later, i had made a reversible Nappy bag!
i have never made a bag before...
i am choosing to call it my new beach bag (our annual myrtle beach family vacation is next week)
and i just keep sitting here thinking, "i made that!"
here are the other patterns i have bought
this one is looking at me as i type....
and these 2 i gave to heather...
i am thinking i could do this one though...i put it in my cart, so i am thinking it will be my next project.
just had to share.
i am going to make layouts today, LOL!!
