Amy Butler Birdie Sling Bag

A while ago I purchased this kit from Joy. But with making my weekender and all the quilts I need to finish - I hadn't got around to it yet.
Last week, I cut out all the pieces out. Then on Thursday I attached all the interfacing. What I loved about this kit was that all I needed was a pair of scissors and some thread. I loved not having to run to the shops and get bits that I had forgotten. It was a very new experience - and one that I very much liked!
It really annoyed my that I hadn't got it done yet, and with Christmas creeping closer, it was putting the pressure on me! So yesterday I had to sew hubbys pants anyway - so I just did it.

Amy's pattern was pretty easy to understand. Although when attaching the bands, I was left with a chunk on either side that I ended up cutting off. But as I was putting the whole bag together - I'm thinking that the extra piece would have make it fit better.
 All in all it's a cute bag - and definitely one I'll do again. It has 2 pockets inside - very handy. And it's really comfy on my shoulder. Just gotta hope that Mum likes it. If not - I am definitely taking it back ;o)

So that's one present off my list.

Are you making any presents this year?
