Finally It’s Done!

I’ve finally finished my Amy Butler Patchwork Handbag project from her In Stitches book. This was the September/October challenge for the In Stitches Sew-along group.



Talk about finishing at the last moment, this was one of those projects that I struggled with—mostly because of life scheduling but also because I'm not a quilter and the whole patchwork thing was not in my comfort zone. I'm pretty okay with the finished project except I do not like the zipper showing so much.

I think it's very sweet Miss Junie. I've seen a lot of attempts at this bag and yours is my favorite. I only hope that some day I'll find the time to get in on the challenge myself.

Great bag, June!! What fun to have a new bag just for Christmas... although it would be lovely any time.

You are so good at finishing projects... unlike many of us. What's your secret clever lady??

It looks great! The unfinished zipper on the inside bothers me a bit, but all in all I like the bag. Your version is beautiful!
