AMH's Field Study line has been one of my favorites this year... I used almost the entire line in my Scrappy Trip Along quilt and used up some of my leftover scraps to make a makeup bag...
Last year I made Amy Butler's infamous Weekender Bag. So I thought I would try another Amy Butler pattern... I went for the Reversible Sunday Sling.
I love love love this bag! I made this one for my little sis and have plans to make one for myself and possibly another for a gift.
For the Exterior of the bag, I used Field Study Parenthetical in Potpourri . It is a linen/cotton blend. I love working with it. It is a gorgeous fabric! Those feathers.... ahh....swoon!
One of the things that drew me to this pattern was the cute handles. I love how they are just tied in a knot. It totally makes the bag different than any other I have seen or made.
Did I mention that it is reversible?!? Umm... Can it get any better?
For the interior of the bag I used AMH LouLouThi Clippings in Passion. I love this fabric so much! I have quite a bit of yardage in this print and am thinking it would be perfect for a summer skirt.
I wish I would have placed my pattern pieces a little different so that they huge roses weren't lined up awkwardly... Oh well- you live and you learn- right?
I am loving these big pockets! They are on both side of the bag. Lots of places to store things!
I made the small version of the bag... Which is still quite large- It measures 18" wide x 14" tall (28" tall with handles) x 3 x deep.
I pretty much stuck to the pattern when making this bag but I did make one little change- I left off the cell phone pocket. I figured with all of the pockets on it already I didn't need to make a separate one for a phone.
My only tip when making this bag is to make sure you use a brand new heavy duty needle when putting together the bag!
This pattern was super easy to follow and very clear. I definitely recommend it! :)
