Finished Birdie Sling, originally uploaded by SewLaTea.

It took me weeks, lol….one step here and there….in between kids and working, I finally got it done. Amy Butler is amazing…and I just love her fabrics and patterns. This was my first bag and one of the first times (or the first?!) using a pattern at all! I didn’t have too much trouble, especially since Shear Delight created a GREAT photo tutorial, which helped, especially for creating those gussets 🙂 A few other girls have also commented on their experiences making the bag which helped as well. I had planned on adding a magnetic closure, but couldn’t figure out WHEN to add them….at which point should I have done that? Can anyone out there tell me? I really liked making this bag, and will definitely make another, maybe in the fall with some nice fall fabrics…mustards? I learned some new things making this bag such as gussets and using a slip stitch…which by the way, I found a great tutorial for by Keyka Lou.  Thank god I did, because I had NO idea how to do that! So here it is. Onto making a patchwork belt.  Maybe tonight…
