.Christmas Sewing: Birdie Slings.

With the Christmas gifts given, I can share some my Christmas sewing now! First up, bags...three Amy Butler Birdie Slings, to be precise. I really love this pattern, love the size and shape of the bag. Mine goes everywhere with me...big enough to use as a nappy bag or just for me. (I like big bags!)

This one for my sister-in-law, Whitney:
This one for my sister, Carli:
And this one for my Mum:
I lined the bag with fabric I stamped and used for a table cloth at AQM last year! I have 4m of it and am not likely to use it again so thought I should put it to good use! It looked pretty cute, but I forgot to take a picture.

Whitney's Bag - Anna Maria Horner Good Folks, Small Gathering in Sea
Amy Butler Midwest Modern 2, Honeycomb in Forest
Carli's Bag - Amy Butler Lotus, Morning Glory in Linen
Amy Butler Lotus, Full Moon Polka Dots in Cherry
Mum's Bag - Paula Prass Summer Soiree, Centerpiece in Gray
Paul Prass Summer Soiree, Mints in Gray

Oh I love the Birdie sling bag...I've been wanting to make one for awhile. You have re-inspired me! Great choice of fabrics.

Isn't it a great bag, I made 2 using Memoirs of Geisha fabric! The Anna Maria Horner fabric looks great too (I have that lined up for the socialite dress!) Awesome bags!
