First Project For The New Year

I’ve been debating what should be my first project of the new year – and I’ve finally settled on Amy Butler’s Reversible Sunday Sling. I selected this one not just because I’m a sucker for a cute bag pattern, but also because of the fabric… I’m in love with this fabric:

These are two cotton prints I recently picked up on a recent shopping trip to Sew Much. I’m normally not a purple fan, but these colors are so vibrant, and the fabric had such a pretty sheen I couldn’t resist! (For those that are wondering, these are from Anthology Fabrics).
So here’s a little breakdown about the cost of this project:

Materials & Cost:
Pattern……..$0.00
Fabric………$25.68
Notions……..$16.73
Total……….$42.41

Now to get cutting! While this particular project doesn’t have a lot of pieces, it does require lots and lots of cutting (exterior and lining prints as well as several layers of interfacing and fleece) and fusing. I suspect that is an all day project in itself… so much for a clean sewing room!

    I can’t wait to see how your bag turns out! I need a new diaper bag and think the next one I make will be an Amy Butler design – I love her styles!
