I'm generally a Joann's and Hancocks fabric shopper (they are both REALLY close to home and work) but I wanted to find some of the fabulous Amy Butler prints I have seen people use on here.  In my search for a new store, I stumbled across a really cute quilting shop not too far from me.  This particular bag is not Amy Butler (that one's still in the works) but I really liked the print and I needed a something a bit more summery.

It's a basic jordy bag, slightly narrowed at the top, with an added flap. My phone and wallet fit perfectly into the two pockets and then I have plenty of room for my digital camera, lipgloss, keys, etc.  The magnetic snap keeps the bag closed and maintains the shape despite the load. Smiley The clasp is really just for looks...

Thanks for looking!

Look at me, I'm on TV, it makes up for the shortcomings of being poor. Now I'm in a million pieces picked up for deliberation by the people listening at home, by the people watching on the telly...

Hi courtlet - I always have to check out the bags you make, they're always so nice!  I love the fabric.  I recently discovered the only fabric store in town that carries Amy Butler fabric.  Unfortunatley her fabric was about the only great stuff in the store.  It looks like you found some additional nice stuff!  Love the paisley print!  Great job on the piping and love the clasp, too.  Would you share your clasp supplier?  Cheesy

That is one of the most neatly sewn linings I've ever seen! All the details really make the bag stunning, especially the piping and the clasp.

Thanks for your feedback!

The clasp is from Joann's, I believe.  I don't remember how much I paid for it but I would be shocked if I spent more than a couple dollars on it.   I bought it without a project in mind and I normally don't do that with expensive embellishments.  

I'm glad you like the piping, kitkabbit! I was a piping "virgin" before this project and it was...interesting. If you look closely, you'll see that the curves are not symmetrical. (the result of my inexperience) The bag I'm working on now has a zipper...so I COMPLETELY understand your struggles.  Smiley
