If you are a regular blog reader of Susie's Sunroom, you will probably notice that I like to make a few things A LOT!
(It is NOT an addiction.... it is an AFFINITY :) )
Besides mug rugs, I love to make purses and totes. One of my favorite patterns to make is the Birdie Sling, an Amy Butler Pattern. This is a stylish and fun tote bag, that can be used as a purse, too.

|First peek... the gold fabric lining, with a big pocket inside|
|I added a cell phone slot for easy access , in the big pocket, and a zippered lining pocket on the other side.|
I customized her bag further, by adding the zippered lining pocket, the magnet snaps for some closure , and her monogram.
This sling bag has fun pleats on the front and back, and is roomy inside. I just love its curvy shape!

Now, I need to focus on making a few more items for a bazaar. On this Saturday, I will be selling items with Maxine! Where is the time going??.....
|I'm off to my sewing room!|
PS Have you thought about joining us in the Across The Pond Sew Along?
If you are too busy, maybe join up in December or January..... it's never too late!
PPS I have linked my sling bag on to Can I get a Whoop Whoop on Confessions of a Fabric Addict. This is a fun blog to check out lots of beautiful projects! Hop on over to look at them.
