There were quite a number of pieces, but my solution to that was pinning pieces of paper on them with what they were and what step they went with, then stacking them in the order they go in. That way you knew you were almost finished when your stack was getting near the bottom!

I love how this turned out.  It's very encouraging to my desire to make a weekender bag.  However, I'm very picky about the fabric and have yet to find something that makes me need to shell out cash for it.  *le sigh*

No kidding! That was what was holding me back to. I had it in the back of my mind that The Weekender just had to have at least the exterior made out of Amy Butler fabric! Luckily the fabric store I bought it from had a coupon for 40% off a single cut of fabric over Christmas and I thought "I know what I'm getting!" I also changed certain things to make the yardage I had work. For instance: The handles and the piping (*shudder*) is to be of the lining fabric. Instead I did the handles of the exterior fabric and picked a solid color that matched the blue in the fabric for the piping (which a fat quarter is plenty for if that is all you are using it for, just as long as you follow the directions for cutting the strips outlined in the pattern).

Very nice! It looks quite professional. It's also nice to meet a fellow VB fan.  Wink

Okay, I love seeing people make this bag.  Now, where do i get Amy Butler fabric?  Seriously, I don't get it.  I only have a Joann's fabric store around here.

This bag looks great.  I soooo want to make this bag, and have had the pattern for awhile, but as others have said - I find it intimidating.  Maybe I need to start working on my own motivational speech!

I too am so intimidated by the Amy Butler patterns and I've been around for years......You Gals all sound so young and it's remarkable what talents you have accomplished in your short lives. Do they still teach Home Ec, in school?
