While shopping on Superbuzzy, I noticed that echino had a line of bags to go with their latest fabric.... I really loved the shape of the Boston Bag (it had an Amy Butler Weekender feel, but looked infinitely less frustrating) so I snatched it up.  After several days of sewing, here's my finished bags:



The bag is a great size and perfect for an overnight bag or weekend (if you pack light).  The handles are long enough that you can sling it over your shoulder or carry it in your hands without it dragging on the ground.



The inside of the bag is unfinished - the exterior and interior fabrics are sewn all in one step.  It's not very noticeable since I used a coordinating thread to zigzag over the raw edges.

I absolutely adore this bag - I can't wait to test it out!

This is beautiful! I need a new weekend trip bag, I might have to check this pattern out. I had no idea Echino made bag patterns. I love their fabrics.

Well apart from the fact that the bag is gorgeous I checked out the site and discovered I am even more impressed because the instructions are in Japanese!!!!!!!

The illustrations made it really easy to put the bag together (not to mention it wasn't a very complex design).  I think most people with some bag and sewing experience could probably put it together without any problems.
