Weekend Sewing

 I sewed from two new patterns this weekend. The coin purse is an Amy Butler pattern. I purchased her bag pattern book from Joann with a 40% off coupon. This pattern was really easy to use. I added keychain hardware and assembled it the same way I do all zipper pouches. The only issue I have with this is that you can either look or reach, you can't do both. The zipper opening is just wide enough to fit your hand inside. When I make this again, i'll widen the top band so it's not so cramped when you reach in. On a positive note, it does fit the iphone!

This is the Go Anywhere Bag from Noodlehead. I purchased this pattern over the holidays when she was having a sale. This is the second purse I've made of hers, so this one was a breeze. Her patterns are SO easy to use. She provides a picture with every step. I didn't buy fabric specifically for this purse, so I just paired together what I had enough yardage of. I used some new Lotta for the outside, some gray quilters "linen" and a DS polka dot for the lining. The pocket is made out of seersucker from my scraps.  I used fusible fleece to beef up the outside so it's super sturdy. I skipped the magnetic snap because I didn't have one on hand.

I love this bag. I think I need to get the pattern if it's super easy. :)
