Love Amy Butler ......................

Don't you just love Amy Butler, if you looked at my stash you would see just how much I did!

It was a friend's birthday last week and I thought what will I make? I knew she would love Amy Butler - right! So I made her this bag and I think she liked it.

It is made from theSwing Pattern by Amy Butler, although I didn't use the sash bow that she has tied onto hers in the photo. I used this lovely Amy Butler fabric called Lotus Lacework and the inside is Lotus Pink Wallflower fabric, did I mention that this bag is totally reversible too! I really like this fabric and also the pattern, I think I will be making more for gifts.

As last week was Mothers Day I made my Mum a little family souvenir. It is a music cd tin that had a hole drilled in the top. Inside, instead of cd's, I cut circular pieces of card the same size as the cd's and on each page there was a photograph or a cute little family saying. I was lucky enough to make this on a Scrapbooking Day with my local scrapbooking crop 'Scrap Angels' which was held to raise money for Abanna a very worthwhile cause and it was also a great excuse to scrap all day.

I have some other projects in hand but more about those later in the week.

Hi Stepanie. I love the bag you made and I am now converted to Amy Butler fabric and designs(glad to see your sewing machine is still in working order). The gift for your mum was unique, I liked the sentiments. Hope you are keeping well. hugs Margie.

Lovely swing bag - I love that Lacework patterned fabric too. I hadn't realised the pattern was reversible... silly me:)
