Betty Shopper Bag Finished




Here is my latest creation... This is the Betty Shopper bag by Amy Butler. The fabric is from Joel Dewberry's line called Manzanita. I love the way this bag turned out. It reminds me of a carpet bag, but is very soft and will be just great for carrying my groceries. I had a hard time finding any cotton canvas or duckcloth over here so I used a cotton drill for the interfacing which I think has turned out very well. The only difficult bit was pounding in the grommets at the end, which required a lot of pounding. I would definitely use this pattern again.

I've really enjoyed seeing the various projects you have been working on, from the quilts to aprons to bags. They're great and they have definitely inspired me! I also like your fabric choices.
