    Sling bag

    Tried my hand at making an Amy Butler Sling Bag. I used some fabrics that I already had on hand to see how to make it. It has two large inside pockets, but still is a bottomless pit...ha!

    You did a great job ... and perfect fabric for a fun bag.

    Bottomless pits can be good!! .... I was just thinking that I could do with one to take some fabric I want to match to the LQS, instead of a separate bag. Plus out of site, unless I really want to drag it out.

    Great job. I noticed the colors in your purse match your kitchen colors.

    This pattern would be a great work bag. I have heard her patterns are difficult with lots of pieces is this true?

    I have not made many purses. Mainly I make the Bow Tucks purses. This is the first Amy Butler that I've made. The difference is that you cut strips & squares to certain sizes for the Bow Tucks & the Amy Butler one I had to cut pattern pieces. With anything once you make one you understand how it goes together & the next ones are easier. I think I prefer using the Bow Tucks as my every day bag just because I like all the pockets & it's not so big that I have to dig to find things.
