Once I figured out the modifications to the Amy Butler Birdie Sling pattern, I was ready to get going. I picked up this pattern at Sew Sisters, but you can get it all over the web, including here.
So my stash is big enough now that I can dig through and find suitable materials for an impromptu project. This is both satisfying and somewhat scary at the same time. sigh.
What I used for this project
Ikea Stockholm Blad in grey and white
Metro Living – grey circles on cream background
Amy Butler Birdie Sling Bag Pattern
Lisa Lam’s The Bag Making Bible – section on flush zip pockets, and zipped bag top
Sew, Mama, Sew tutorial on zipper pockets
white thread, purple and magenta zippers, assorted fabric remnants for pockets etc
The pictures above show the inner lining with mini pocket, the exterior of the bag (minus the handles) and a close up of the zippered pocket on the bag front. I finished the bag late tonight, and will snap some pictures tomorrow.. good night for now 😉
