Amy Butler Swing Bag

The other day I stopped in the local quilt store. It is a great store but doesn't carry many designer fabrics - which is part of why I opened my own fabric shop on etsy (http://www.fernridgefabrics.etsy.com/). As I was looking around I noticed a lone Amy Butler pattern sitting on the counter - and it was for sale - and for a great price! I have been wanting to purchase an Amy Butler pattern for a purse but every time I am at a quilt store I am trying to stick to a budget and there never seems to be money left for a new pattern by the time I pick out fabrics.

Now the hard part is picking which two fabrics from my stash I want to use. I took a picture of the pattern with two fabrics - a nice Joel Dewberry print from his new collection and Amy Butler's Happy Dots.

I have read through the pattern and cut out the paper pieces. It seems like a pretty simple pattern. Hope it turns out well!

  1. I love Amy Butler patterns. It's hard when you want to make something but know you only have enough to make it perfect- no room for mistakes! I love both the fabrics, though!
