More finished bags.

combo of Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry fabrics.

Midwest Modern fabric from Amy Butler.

Same bag as above, done all in the same Amy Butler fabric.

and the finished bag from the previous post.


Love this project. All of the fabric is Amy Butler. I quilted all of the fabric in a diamond pattern, and the side is a patchwork of various size rectangles and squares. I’m ready to make another one.

Here is the result of my current sewing obsession. Both bags are done with Amy Butler fabric, which I love. The larger floral bag initially had basic strap handles, but I changed them to a tab handle. Having a bit of trouble getting the lining sewn into the bag as there is a TON of interfacing in these bags. Both bags are based on the Bridget bag by Kay Whitt.

Here’s the start on my next bag. The floral fabric is from a skirt I bought at TJ Maxx a few years ago for $5.00 that no longer fits :(.  The bottom is a dark brown, and when done will have the same brown lining and handles.
