Sew and Tell Challenge

I decided to participate in Amylouwho's Sew and Tell Challenge using Amy Butler fabrics and/or patterns. I recently bought Amy B's new book Style Stitches that has some really cute bags. I decided to try out the Teardrop bag using fabrics from Amy (of course!)~ cutting into my pink coriander stash!! Also, the main fabric is from Josephine Kimberling's Glam Garden, the inside will be Pie Basket from Hope Valley, Jennifer Paganelli's Kate's Wish for inside pocket & I think the stripe is RJR?? The book rates this bag as intermediate, so I thought it would be a good one to try to stretch out my sewing skills. Here's a link to the Sew & Tell Challenge: (prizes are involved!!) http://www.amylouwho.com/2010/08/amy-butler-sew-tell-challenge.html

Can't wait to see your bag! I looked through Style Stitches at the store the other day and it's definitely going on my Christmas wish list! So many great bags!

Monique, I have been following your blog and I just want to say I love how you can put colors together, I love your work. I am sure the bag will be very easy for someone who sews as nicely as you do!

That's going to be a beautiful bag! Especially with a little Sis Boom surprise inside. Looking forward to seeing the end result.

Thanks for visiting!
