Thank you! I can see why people can really get into bag making, it's fun and the experience is quite a bit different than clothing. I wish I could have posted pictures of the inside, but it is so deep and the photos just dont turn out well. I am going to have to make a smaller purse next time, I feel bad this is just hanging in my closet because I havent had a use for it.
This was so much fun to make! The hen was originally suppose to 'lay eggs', but I left it out. Although, now I think the idea of it laying eggs is what really made the toy, especially since the chicks are small enough to fit inside plastic easter eggs. I plan on making another one in the future and will definately not leave that out. I found and bought the pattern from ikatbag.com
This is the first bag I've ever made, it's from Amy Butlers Birdie Sling pattern. I used Amy Butlers soul blossom print. It's definately not a bag I want to carry around everywhere with me. It's much bulkier than I imagined, because of the fusible fleece. Probably better used as tote or carry on type of bag. The pattern was easy enough to follow for a bag newbie though.
Oh WOW..where did you find that fabric!?! I thought the Robert Kaufman universal monsters fabric was discontinued years ago, because I remember trouble getting my hands on some back then. Oh please tell!!
