January Bag - Done!

So, I decided to take the challenge of a fellow blogger and attempt to make one bag per month from Amy Butler's new book, Style Stitches.  Jemalia from JemJem, challenged her readers to make the Cosmo Bag for January.  I am quite proud of my bag, although I must admit that it was quite challenging for the very first, so-called "Easy" bag.  I'm not sure how I'll even be able to make it to the intermediate bags!

Anyway, here are my pictures of the bag.  I bought the exterior fabric from a Crate and Barrel outlet.  Believe it or not, it was only $5 a yard.  I should have bought more fabric from there.  The blue fabric was from my stash and the lining was from Joann's.  I am quite proud of myself, although I'm a bit tired out now!

We'll see about February...


  1. I love your bag! It's quite refreshing! Congrats on completing it, thanks for being part of the challenge!

  2. Your bag is gorgeous! I love that big bold print you used on the exterior. Great job!
