My duffle is giving me grief, but I am determined to finish today - it was supposed to be done for work a week and a half ago, so going to finish it, so I can bring it into work tomorrow, today is my second day off since February since February 9th (such is life with teaching on call, some months have nothing, others bring work almost daily.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

 "I have never seen added interfacing. Are you just sewing thru the ironed on layer of interfacing or into the focus fabric too?"   I am tacking it on through the focus fabric too.  But the stitching is not noticeable on it.
Wow Glamis your bag is going to be a piece of art! What talent!
liliv-1 your purse is looking great! Love the contrast stitching.

Diesels_mom, you made quite some progress! What a great idea to use the spray and I love the idea of using a plastic placemat for the bottom too! Never thought of that!

gozer, I LOVE the bag you chose, lovely shape. I KNOW what you mean when you talk about destashing! I have no idea if Zebra is still popular, I am so not updated on that  Wink
Too bad you don't have enough fabric left for the bag you want to make.

mini_mum, how great that you will join us! Welcome  Smiley

Glamis: that is already so AWESOME!!! can't wait to see it finished!!

Eclectic Dreamer, that sucks!! Hope you find it at some awkward place or so!

lilliv: pretty! Love the bow, very stylish!

My Gold tone clasps arrived this morning.  So, I was motivated to finish up my Amy Butler Blossom Bags.  The plaid one I decided to use gate clasps so that I can change the handle sizes.

I used turn locks on both of them.  It was much easier than I expected and I can't believe I had been so intimidated by them.  I love the look they add.

The floral one I love except I wish I had longer handles on it.  But I did not have enough fabric for the longer straps Sad  I literally had no scraps of this fabric larger than 4"x4".  I really love the design of the Blossom bag.  
I used a wool fabric that I have had for almost 20 years on the plaid bag.  It had enough forgiveness in the fabric not to show any little wrinkles from flipping the lining etc.
Heme Dec weight was used on the floral bag.  It worked nicely.  I would steer away from normal weight cotton  fabrics for this bag.  I think it would be prone to wrinkling and the heavier weight fabrics are nice in helping the bag to stay curved.   I changed the inside a bit to eliminate a divider panel but add a zipper pouch area in the lining.

Those are great!  I really love the hardware you used on the plaid one...

WOW Love all the new bags & the ones that are just starting. The pug one will be so cute! Excited to see it finished!
"Diesels_Mom" I didn't know about the spray adhesive that's good to know. I can't wait to see what your bag is going to look like when you are all done!
"liliv-1" I love the bow & I too think the pink stiching sets it off!!


I'm still working on my patches. My PC is down & I'm on my husbands so can't put a pic up for a bit. He doesn't like me on his CP for very long. So will have to wait until I get mine fix!!

 Plaidpineapple, if you had to rate how hard that bag is how hard would you say? I know my sister would LOVE that style bag but it is suppose to be a harder pattern. I have put in the center divider with the zipper on another purse and that wasn't too hard. Scale of 1-10... please!

Think I've just decided on my bag fabric - IF I've got enough  Undecided Undecided Undecided (made a cape a while ago, and think a matching across body bag to wear underneath would be cool)
