Sweet Harmony Handbag

A while back I posted about how I found this "lost" project. I had purchased everything I needed a few years ago and somehow totally forgot about it! With Sara hosting Purse Palooza it was the perfect time to finally get it done.

The pattern is Amy Butler Sweet Harmony Handbag and Tote. I chose to make the handbag. It's made out of Amy Butler Love which is one of my all time favorite lines. My favorite quilt ever that I've made is done with these fabrics. I didn't realize you can still purchase the whole line here. I may have to contain myself!!


As usual with an Amy Butler pattern, the results are a very professional bag.  But also as usual, you need to read the directions carefully. I had the bag almost finished before i realized I forgot to add the outer pockets!


The bag gives you the option to do zippers or pockets on the inside. with such small pockets I just did open pockets.


Now I just need to get my kids out of diapers so I can carry a small bag again!

I'm entering this bag in Purse Palooza 2012. And Ellison Lane's Summer Sewing Contest.

Oh wow, I've never seen the use of 2 snaps before...but definitely better than things falling out. =)

I love it! Someone shared Amy Butler's The Everything Bag during Talkin' Tuesdays last night, and I think it would make the greatest craft bag ever!. This one looks awesome, too. See, diaper bags don't become useless, they become craft bags ;-)
