a swingin' bag for mama

We had the loveliest visit from Mom this weekend. Shopping, sewing, and cooking were all done to great success. There was a trip to Purl Patchwork, lovely purchases from the Macy's shoe department, a batch of brownies, and some absolutely gorgeous weather. Jennie and I got a tutorial in skirt-making (still in progress) and I made this bag for Mom from an Amy Butler pattern using an Amy Butler print. The handles are ever-so-slightly wonky, but you have to look closely to spy the wonkiness. I'm hoping to make one for myself soon, maybe with felt and some kind of applique design (which means I'll need to learn to work with felt as well as how to applique...but my crafty mood doesn't seem to be wearing off so it sounds like a fun challenge)

Thanks marmee for a great weekend!

Hee hee, you say "wonky!" I love that word, but almost nobody uses it here.

The bag is fabulous and the weekend was more so. Glad you ladies enjoyed it too!

Did you like this pattern? I have a bunch of hers, but have considered buying this one. Worth it?
