This is my first sewing project ever, so be nice Smiley.

It's the large portfolio from a free Amy Butler pattern (you can find it here:

http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns.php#)

Some of the stitching is very awry but I still like it.







Thanks for looking!

It's really pretty, love that fabric. You did a really good job, congratulations on your first sewing project. What kind of interfacing did you use, it looks so sturdy.

Don't you guys hate it when someone shows us a gorgeous project and then tells us it's their first time?  Cheesy  I'm totally jealous, it took me forever to make my stuff look so neat and my mom is a professional seamstress!  Girl, keep up your good work  Grin  The project is adorable!

Great job on this! And I LOVE that fabric! Wherever did you get it? It looks like this Ikea bedspread I am in love with.

I'm glad someone did this project, I wasn't sure what the inside looked like and now I know, so I'm a little more inclined to make it. It's sort of like a wallet on steroids.  Cheesy
