This bag is based off of Amy Butler’s “Patchwork Handbag.” I doubled the width, added ten pockets to the inside, and simplified the log cabinish detail. I am so very pleased with how it turned out. I spent the $10 a yard on her fabric to use as the main pattern for the bag. It took quite a while to make (it was a little difficult to figure out the measurements to make it extra wide), but it was a super fun project and I will consider making it again, maybe for a gift in the future. I also made a little quilted pouch and a clear pouch for the airport security line. I’ve posted the widened measurements for anyone else that might want their bag a bit bigger.

Ryan and I are walking down to Seattle’s super cool library. We haven’t been, yet. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
