I’ve been working hard at building the inventory in my Etsy shop recently, and, about three weeks ago I thought it was time to take a little break and make something for myself. So I dug through my binder of patterns and decided to make this bag.
It’s an Amy Butler bag pattern from her book, Amy Butler’s Style Stitches: 12 Easy Ways to 26 Wonderful Bags. It was labeled with a difficulty level of “Advanced,” and they weren’t kidding! It took me about 9 hours to make this bag, but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
My dear hubby, although supportive, doesn’t often get terribly excited about my creations, but ever since I finished this one, he’s been on my case to get it listed in my Etsy shop…so, now it is.
I’ve even got a few “matchy-matchies,” as a friend of mine likes to put it…
And, for anyone who’s counting, these new listings bring me up to 74 items in my shop…only 26 more to meet my end-of-summer goal!
