"Love" this bag...

I finally had a chance to finish my little project with the Amy Butler "Love" fabrics I picked up. Well, actually a couple of projects...but they go together. This is the front of my new bag along with a smaller bag to go inside.

I used every print in the collection--and doubled up on a few of my favorites. This is the back of the bag...don't know which I like better! I used Nanette's pattern again...I return to her pattern again and again because I love both the shape and size...and because it showcases fabrics so well!
Okay...well that's all for now...back to sewing! Have a great day!

That's a great bag. I love the idea of the smaller matching one. I just got my Amy Butler LOVE fabrics and am afraid to cut into them. I love them so much and want to make sure I use the fabric wisely. Never really felt that way about fabric before ;-)
