One for me

I decided that the best way to show off my work was to carry it with me.

I had been using a great bag, but it was a bag I bought, not something I made myself. I thought I'd try to replicate it. I had this piece of Joel Dewberry's Aviary fabric that I had been hoarding, waiting for the perfect thing.

This isn't exactly like the model. The fabric is a little less slouchy and the straps are attached a little differently. Inside there is a zipper pocket and a couple open pockets.
Why yes, I do carry all that around with me. Often more! The bottom is round, with a few little pleats to give body to the bag. It's a great weight and very roomy.

As always, there are a few things I'd do differently- like make actual bias tape, cut on the bias- but overall I'm very happy with it.

  1. And the birdies are so fitting for you!! I agree that the best way to show off your work is to carry it around--why didn't you think of that sooner? :P

  2. Hmmmm, I made need one of these in Tiger Stripes or Leopard print. We must talk.

    Btw, I will be sending you an email with pictures of my bookshelves for your collection.

  3. What a great bag. I love that fabric too!
