I FINISHED THE AMY BUTLER CARRY ALL BAG! Whew-hoo!!

Oh, indeed it has been a long time. Here are some pictures of my bag!

The day before yesterday, I was sewing the bag together and it dropped to the floor and Uki ran into it! I hadn't sewn up the bottom sides and just after I took this photo, she ran out of the side opening!

I had a REALLY hard time with the lining. Not putting it together, that was easy; it was the sewing around the edges and not getting caught up with the straps. I tore it out three times and finally had to baste both the bag 1/2" and the lining. That made it easier for me. I also did not like sewing the big 'x' on the handles. Cumbersome!

Here she is! Click on the photo to enlarge it. I put my very own label that I made on it too. First time I am using them!

Here is a closer look at my label. I am pleased with it!

Here is a little glimpse of the inside so that you can see the lining. It is light grey and the main fabric has a bit of grey in it as well. Overall, would I make another one? Yep! I enjoyed the whole thing.

Thanks for stopping by...
