It totally motivated me to do some sewing on my own.
We have a great little quilt shop here in our little town, so I decided to drop in and see what they had going on. They had several classes offered this fall, and I thought taking a class would be a good idea for me. I already have a box full of unfinished projects...why add one more??
And this is the class I chose:
An Amy Butler "Birdie Swing Bag"
I roped my friend T. into taking the class with me, and we had so much fun!! We unfortunately did not get the bag finished that evening. (probably due to the talking) But we were determined not to shove it in the "unfinished project box". So, last Friday, the boys took the kids to a movie, and T. and I finished our bags!
I was so excited about the finished project, I immediately cut out another one, and made it up the next day!
And this is it!
I totally loved the blue in the store, and thought that my mom would like the black and red one, but now, I think I like the black better.... maybe I'll keep them both...
Amy Butler has some really great patterns at her site, "Amy Butler Designs" I've already bought another pattern book....
