Friday? Already?

Already another Friday in November? Really?

For today's Sew 'n' Tell Friday I have the Amy Butler Birdie Sling (rt) that I just completed and is much larger than expected, even though every pattern review said... its large.

One of the things that inspired me to unpack the sewing was seeing some of the great bags people were making and wanting to try it myself so I browsed online and found a couple patterns. The Birdie sling is hanging with a couple of my other bags from the LickitySplit pattern that I made this summer.



My youngest snagged the Phoebe bag that I made from Oakland Raiders fabric and carries it with pride and a bit of fear since we live in Cowboy country.

I also made up some little zipper bags with left over fabrics and some scraps I found. I am planning to make a couple more, fill with a lip gloss, makeup brush, ect for my girls to give as presents for Christmas to their friends.

Be sure to check out the other Friday finishes over at Amy's site.

  2. Such pretty bags! They look comfy to carry, but big enough to haul a lot! The little zippered pouches are too cute and I really like what you're going to do with them. What a super nice MoM!

    Thanks for such fun Friday Finishes!

  3. Well, all I can say is it's a good thing you gave your sewing machine that 6 year (or however long it was) rest because you are sure working it hard and long now! You're a veritable production machine! So much fun to see each and every thing you're turning out. :o)
