I have that pattern too and haven't made it because it just looks too complicated. maybe I will attempt it. Yours looks great! Safe travels!

It's beautiful! I really like the way it look in the new Love fabric. I've been toying with the idea of making a Birdie Sling for awhile now...hmmm, maybe now's the time?!

Heather said...

I really like the bag, you did a great job and it'll fit all of your stuff in it. I have stayed up until 1:00 to finish projects too, sometimes you just have to get it done :D

Sherri said...

Love it!!! I've wanted to make that pattern for awhile!

Tracey said...

Now I need a new bag too!

(Oh to be independently wealthy and have someone around to do all the *work* so I could just sew and be with the baby all day)

Very nice. You're inspiring me to tackle a bag.

Rebekah said...

love love love this bag! The colors are perfect and I want to make one just like it.

Have fun on your trip!

I love it. The polka dots are perfect! I made her Frenchy bag, and I was surprised by how easy it was. She does a great job with the directions.

amy smart said...

That bag is great! I need to finally try that pattern. I've admired it for too long. Maybe one for my sister's birthday. (She's a non-sewer.) Have fun in Cali!

Barb said...

Love it!!

Andee said...

It looks great! Now I want to make one in those colors!

Julia said...

Wow! I can't believe you made that all in one day! That is amazing! My sister and I were just talking about making a bag and I told her the Amy Butler one's were awesome and that I have a couple of patterns. Too bad I don't have this one! It's gorgeous. Love your colors too! Have a great time on your trip!

Beth said...

I'm making a skirt out of this!

Have a great time...soak up some warm weather!

Bradie Sparrow said...

OK! That's it, now I have to dig mine out and make it. It really was easy huh? You've inspired me girl!
