The Birdie Sling

Well this is technically the first bag I sewed, but couldn't publish because it was a gift. The Amy Butler Birdie Sling. A friend at work had made a few for sale and gifts and I really liked the look, not for myself necessarily, but thought it was a pretty bag. So my first try went extremely well, right up until I had to make a gussett. Now, not being a sewer, this was like reading chinese to me. It wasn't until I found a great blog that showed me how to do it. This was a lifesaver, for the second attempt. I used the Amy Butler Nigella home decor fabric and think it looks great!

The ladies at the quilting store helped me out with the lining fabric, we got the whole shop involved and I think it turned out great.
