As the title suggests, I have been a bit behind about posting my creations to Craftster...

Without further ado, here is what I have been up to lately! This one is made of a vintage soft gray corduroy-like fabric, lined with a pink silk brocade.

an insight peek...


Then, we have a lined zipper pouch- the fabric on this was really cool, because it was pre-pleated.

an inside peek...


This bag represents my first attempt at applique- I love how it turned out! The inside is lined with the orange and brown fabric checked fabric that is used in the applique, and the outside is a brown tweed.

Here is a close-up of the applique


This is a zippered pouch with a key ring, crafted out of fabric I received in a swap (thanks whoopdedoo_5!)


And finally, the bag I am most proud of creating, is an Amy Butler Birdie sling. I crafted this using heavy fabrics, wools and tweeds, in an attempt to make this a bag suitable for fall for my future mother-in law. I would recommend using lighter fabrics- I broke a needle at the end going through all those layers! I added a snap to keep the bag closed.



Here you can see by birdie lining pocket (That fabric was also from whoopdedo_5!)



aaand a shot of the other pocket (sorry so blurry)


Any comments are always appreciated!

Your bags are great and i can imagine sewing through the thick fabric was hard work but you`ve done it brilliantly.  Smiley

The alien one and the cute flower appliqued are my faves Smiley  I feel intimidated by applique and have yet to try it.  Great job!

Love the Amy Butler purse too!  Is there a pattern that you used for that?  Do you have a link to it you would like to share?  I LOVE large bags, and am always looking for nifty styles Smiley

Hi SaphireMoon,

The Amy Butler Purse is made from an Amy Butler Pattern called the Birdie Sling. You can read about it here: http://www.amybutlerdesign.com/products/patterns_display.php?id=37. It's (unfortunately) not a free pattern, it costs around 13 dollars (yikes!). That being said, it is printed on heavier paper than normal patterns are, and is very easy to follow and use, so I thought it was worth the investment. I plan to make more of these bags!
