It’s Done, It’s DoNE! THE BIG BAG IS DONE!

Well, after a week of work, and confusing directions…. The Amy Butler Field Bag is DONE! Thank goodness!

There were a few moments of confusion towards the end, but the machine and my new perm held in there…

In the end, my mom did the last few tricky widgets, but then let me come in and do all the top stitching…

So, after a week of build-up…..

YAY!  NOW, I AM READY FOR MY CRUISE!  (Have I mentioned my cruise? 2 weeks at sea? Yes? Hmmmm…)

So, now that my sewing projects are done, I Can get back to my New Years Goal of finishing my knitting work-in-progresses…

    Thank you, Karen. Once I figure out how to do the link things in the post, I am going to link to your fabulous planner covers! I love how you did them. You’re fabric combinations are right up my alley! The big bag was fun, but some of her directions were sketchy. Thank goodness I have a mom who was a Home Ec Teacher!

    You are SO kind! Thank you. I’ve subscribed to your blog so I can watch all the fun projects you are working on. I have one Amy Butler pattern, but I haven’t tried it yet. It is a little bigger than I’d anticipated when it got ordered. Great work!
