I used some of the Amy Butler scraps that seems to overflow my sewing space these days.
What a lot of fun it was. I came home from work at 5.15 pm and started sewing. The instructions are so easy and clear that i didn't have to unpick anything at all ( and let me tell you that is a rare thing for me...) So at 7 o'clock I was at the party with a finished bag and had even managed to squeeze in a quick shower and makeup time.
I made the bag a little smaller than the pattern suggested since this will be strictly a pouch. I also used a magnetic clips instead of a button... partly because I didn't have a nice button (!) and partly because the small size. Looking at it know I wish I had made the corners a little more rounded, but hey, it pretty good looking bag despite of it, isn't it?
I'm already planning to make another bag based on the same pattern and with a decorative trim like in the pattern just making the trim in a bright color. And the base in one fabric only rather than the very scrappy look I got going here. The options are endless....
