Isn't she lovely???

Well, hello there. I just have a moment today because I am heading out the door to meet with some very important people, about some very important things.....

Ahem..... What is that you say? The bag? Is it new? Why yes, yes it is. I made this last night. It is the Sophia carry all, from Amy Butler, of course. She gets me every time! I could not wait to make this. It was fairly quick, but I did cheat a little. The pattern suggests you make your own cording, but I bought maxi cording from the fabric store. That did save me some time and I am so glad I took the short cut.

I know the color choice is probably not the best for a woman with lots of kids and a dog, but I scotch guarded the heck out of it. Sometimes you just want what you want, right?


So yes, those very important people are waiting for me, but first I must put my sweatpants and rubber boots back on because you can't really puddle jump in high heels now can you?

I have fabric for you! Picked up some great Amy Butler prints that match our bed room. I am hoping you can make me some snazzy pillows. :-)

What a gorgeous bag!! I almost bought an Amy Butler book today but opted for an Amy Karol instead. I am a beginner with a capitol B.

Beautiful work :)

Great job on the bag. This is beautiful. I have some Amy Butler bag patterns but I've never seen this one. I'll now have to add this to my list of must haves.

Great craftmanship, it looks totally professional!

Love the bag, lovely fabric. Oh, and great heels, although not puddle jumping appropriate. Thanks for your comment on my blog!

I am really jealous! I ordered that pattern and I am dying because it hasn't come yet. Now that I see your beautiful bag I can't stand it! I can wait to dive into it. You did a fabulous job, it's stunning! xo, suzy

Love the Amy Butler Bag. I've bought a couple of her patterns but they seem so very complicated. I usually do "Lazy Girl" bags. Maybe I'll have to give Amy a try again.

I love the bag!

Such a pretty bag! And I like the solid cording that you used. Amy Butler fabric is pretty pricey just to use for cording. It's much better to save it to make more purses. :-)
