My first attempt at making an Amy Butler bag. Love it!
I’ve been working on this bag today to get it finished. I bought the fabric and started making it during my holiday vacation. Today I finished it. It is really cute, and it wasn’t hard to make at all. The fabric that I used is from Amy Butler as well. It’s from her Love line and it’s called” paradise garden /periwinkle”. The strap and top of the bag are a grey with white polka dots. I don’t remember where I got this. It’s from my stash. I love the exterior, but I also love the lining. It is fully lined (with a pocket to boot) in Amy Butler’s Soul Blossoms in “Periwinkle, Laurel Dots”. I love how two different fabrics, from two different lines still coordinate because of the periwinkle.
These pictures aren’t the greatest, but they will work for now. This bag is called The Teardrop Bag and it is from this book by Amy Butler:
I didn’t quite get the pleats on the outside quite right, but they work for me and it’s just the perfect size to hold my Nook color and/or my iPad. I am very pleased that this is my first finished project of 2012. The crafty year seems to be off to a good start. Now I better get going because the new season of Downton Abbey is getting ready to start!!! Can’t wait to see what those British are up to now!
