Great job!

I have the Amy Butler bag and am currently sewing it now.  I am doing daily posts on my blog as to its progress.  So far so good.  I plan on making a few modifications to the AB bag, one is to add feet to the bottom also.  I had them already purchased and ready to go.  I seen you put 6 feet on yours.  Do you feel that 4 would have been enough if they were placed closer together or is 6 needed?

The way I make my bags is I gauge things by what I see out there & change it to how I think my bag will be used. I put 4 feet, I believe, at about an 1-1/2" from the corners - because this bag is lighter in color (the base color), 17" long, & I know the receiver, I knew this bag would go thru some wear & tear so put on the extra 2 feet in the middle. Having a sturdy floor inside would definately help the situation. Good luck w/your bag - pls show pics when you're done. Now I need to go check out your blog.

**Went & checked out your blog. For your handles, you can use cotton fabric - that's what I did. I just used sturdy interfacing in the handles for stability - works real well. Kudos for your piping, I tried it once & it scared me, that's what made me not do an AB bag. I am so with you as far as not paying full price for fabric & notions. Nice blog btw, I'm trying to put one together too.**

You did a great job on this bag. I like the the different color for the pockets & the embroidery too. The feet is a nice extra touch!!!  Wink

I totally agree Parka Pucker - you get to make it how you want it, not how someone else wanted it. Thanks!

Hey there, Little Me!  It's nice to see a post from you again.  I had not been checking for a while, then when I came back, I noticed I hadn't seen anything from you.  Glad your back is better, and I love your bag.  Great work! Grin
