I made this weekender and matching makeup roll about a year ago.  I used a moleskin fabric and a linen with metallic print for the bag and the makeup roll.  You can see more photos, including photos of the construction process over on my blog. http://mouseinmypocket.com/2012/10/my-amy-butler-weekender-bag/







I'd love to know what you think.

I like it.  The fabrics are beautiful.  Is it your own design?

WaggonsWest it's the Amy Butler Weekender bag, and the makeup roll is from a tutorial I found on Pinterest.  I wish I was talented enough to design something like this, though.

Beautiful! I love the fabric. I've wanted to make this pattern forever but I've heard some horror stories about it, how difficult was it to make?

atomicstitch This was the first bag I ever made.  If I can do it anyone can.  It does take a little patience, and you need to go slow in places (piping is evil).  But it was well worth all of the time I put into the bag.

I love this bag! Yours is beautiful. I have on question: one the outside pockets, is the inside lined? If so, with which fabric? The exterior or interior? Thanks!

Lots of us have made this weekender bag.  Many of us also posted our tips and tricks as to how to get it done and any tweaks/additions we may have made.  My blog has my adventures in making this bag over I think 6 days.  I added small feet to the bottom of mine to help keep the fabric clean, as it spends a lot of time on the floor (airplane terminals, air plane under seat baggage storage, etc).

If I make another one, I would definitely add a shoulder strap to it.  It would be so much easier to lug it through airports with a shoulder strap.

Take your time with it and take it slow, it has a lot of parts but it is very do-able.  read read read the directions over and over again.  Browse blogs that have documented their journey - adventure of making this bag and you will be armed with everything you need to know to sew this up and make any mods you want.
