Amy Butler's Flight Bag

WOW!!! This purse was one of the hardest things I have sewn lately (besides quilts, which is a whole other blog). I am not one who likes to pin, I hate reading directions, and not really a big fan of bias tape. Well, there was a lot of pinning, a lot of reading, and A LOT of bias tape. This bag is from Amy Bulter's new book Style Stitches. It has over 26 bags in the book. Easy to hard. Kathy from The Quilt Shoppe wanted me to make a sample from the book. She picked one of the cutest, and one of the hardest bags. I was up to a challenge!! This bag is, or was my baby. I followed directions, I pinned, and even did lots of bias tape. So looking forward to making another bag! Just maybe not that one :)

As for the winner of the tutu...........drum roll please........Nikki is our fab winner!!! WHOOT WHOOT!

As many of you know I have two daughters. One who is 9, Parker, and one who just turned two, Hadlee. And they couldn't be more different. Parker as a baby never liked dolls, or dress up clothes, it just wasn't her thing. Hadlee on the other hand LOVES dolls, and dressing up. I saw these tutu's everywhere I went and thought how cute they are. Went to google and found tons of tutorials on how to make no sew tutu's, bought the material, and started making them. They are super easy and hardly take any time at all. I just love then so much, and so does Hadlee. Here is the best part.....I am giving one away. Write me a comment and then one lucky person will receive a black tutu!
