When ordering Amy Butler’s laptop and iPOD pattern, I also ordered her new Birdie Sling pattern and gave it a try. For once I didn’t say any bad words when making one of Amy’s projects. There wasn’t any Timtex to fight and everything was pretty straightforward.
This bag is huge and will probably be the one I use most all summer.
These are the fabrics I used.
I noticed that Amy’s new patterns do not call for Timtex and thought maybe she decided against using it as the air turns blue for those working with her patterns—a bio-hazard, I’m sure. But no, the real reason is because Timtex is no longer being made. So, for those of us with a lot of Amy Butler patterns in our stash, there’s an excellent review about potential substitutions to consider on the Craft Apple blog.
