It’s all done!
This bag was a challenge for me…
I absolutely love the outcome though!
I’m loving this fabric too…Ready for spring with yellow and gray
Here’s my two cents:
The bag, after completed, is roomy and sturdy. It really is not a complicated construction, as long as you can decipher AB’s terminology and sketches.
The fabric called for is a tad excessive. Although, I was glad to have it because I ended up having to re-cut a few pieces… which leads me to AB’s vague instructions. Step 7 was completely confusing and seemed like it could’ve been achieved in a much simpler fashion.
I think step by step photos would be very helpful, even if they were drawings. Maybe I’m spoiled by such great tutorials out in blog land. :)
I will definitely be tackling more bags from this book. Heck, I may even make this bag again now that I know what to anticipate. The second one is always easier, right?
Here is the next bag in the book…looks cute, and very handy for the gym or an overnight trip…
Now to pick out the fabric…
Don’t forget, I’m participating in My Crafty Crap’s Style Stitches Sew-Along and will be linking HERE. Come look at all the other bags being linked up and get inspired to make your own!
