It Is Finished . . .Introducing The "Amy Bag"

This has been a "good" Friday! I got the day off from work, it's 80 degrees, the sun /Son is shining, (I'm thankful for the supreme sacrifice that my Savior made so many years ago) and I've been able to resurrect this handbag from the "I'm not happy with it" pile.  Thwarted by a migraine of three days, that's finally over too!  I'm so psyched about this bag pattern and I can't wait to make it again in a different fabric.

I shortened the height by two inches and added wider and more decorative straps.  I made the rounded bottom wider and longer, and used very thick interfacing for reinforcement. The hardware really sets it off and only the finest was used.  This purse will hopefully give it's new owner, Amy, much joy.  (This bag is now hence forth to be named after Amy!) Take a look, if you like what you see, I can make another for you--convo me on or email me at
