Amy Butler Cosmo Bag Finished!

Wowzie!
Definitely not a beginner bag!

Amy Butler Cosmo Bag.


I agree with Lisa the directions need more photos or a YouTube video.
Much ripping out occurred on this project...
Sewed the handle on backwards...
Didn't cut out all the pieces...54 pieces (did I mention it wasn't a beginner bag?)
Yelled at it many times...
Cried...
Took it to Grandma's for repairs.


On the bright side...
It is big and roomy.


Has a large 1 1/2 inch covered button on it.
Great pockets on both sides of the bag.


Bonus pockets inside of the bag!

















Made from interior decorating fabric so extra sturdy.
Which made it extra tough to sew.
Blah, blah, blah...


I am glad that I didn't sign up
 to make one bag a month or
You may have had to
 admit me to the
Sewing Psycho "Ward".

But, I did make a personal goal
to sew one project a month...

February's project I have had for almost a year...
Another Amy Butler pattern....
It is a cell phone or Ipod case.
Cross your fingers this one is a little easier for me...

Looks beautiful Kara! Those darn handles! I did the same thing - lots of sweat and tears in this bag... And I agree - NOT a beginner project - BUT we did it!!! Yay!

Kara, your bag is so pretty! Did you upload it to the Flickr group? I don't remember anymore...

Yes, I will be doing all 12 projects, but, I do not expect anyone else to do so. Join in when you'd like!

Congrats on completing your Cosmo Bag!
