Boston Bag

With all the bag patterns and books that I own you wouldn’t think I needed another design to add to my ‘collection’. However, the other night, while surfing, I discovered that Japanese fabric designer Etsuko Furuya has created 3 patterns for her Echino line. The one that really caught my attention was her Boston Bag – it gives me the same feel as Amy Butler’s Weekender, but maybe less frustration (my Weekender finally became a wadder after becoming frustrated sewing through all those layers)? I wound up ordering the pattern from Fabrictosew’s Etsy shop, but Superbuzzy sells this one as well. I’d love to hear if anyone has any experience with this pattern line and would love to see a finished project if you have one!

    I really love that bag pattern! It does look very AB Weekender…but also a little different.
    I dont think you can ever have enough patterns…although my husband and overflowing pattern boxes will beg to differ!
    I cant wait to see if anyone else has made this bag. I’m looking for that final push to just buy the pattern.

    I was just about to order the Amy Butler Bag. I’ve been wanting a weekend bag for a while. Maybe I’ll wait and see how your bag turns out. 🙂 My husband is a Japanese teacher so if you don’t understand some of the instructions e-mail me and I’ll have him take a look.

    I love that pattern, but it was a disaster when I tried to make something from a Japanese craft book.
    I guess I’m not good at looking at pictures and figuring things out, I need words too.
    I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    What a great looking bag! Hope the pattern is better than the AB Weekender. Looking forward to seeing your review and finished product (then I’ll decide if I must have the pattern, too).

    oh, and thanks for those links! I’m also looking at the echino laptop pattern…and those fabrics at superbuzzy look really yummy!

    I bought a lot of Echino fabrics from Purl Soho because I love them. That bag looks great, but I’m waiting to see how you like it!
