Amy Butler Style Stitches Sew-Along

Like I need to start any more projects.

I already have the book, though, and love the Origami Bags (the only thing I've made from it so far). Without a sew-along there's little chance I'll do other than think about making more stuff from the book. So I'm in.

First, though, I need to stop by the fabric store and stock up on interfacing. Man, that Amy loves to pile on the interfacing. And fusible fleece. I'm out of that, too.

Biggest challenge: I want to make as many of these projects as possible from stash. Coordinating prints and linings included.

We're starting with the "Cosmo" bag (that's the one on the cover). Funny, 'cause Cosmo loves to crawl into any kind of open bag. If I'm smart, I'll choose a dark fabric for minimal cat-hair contrast.


  1. Thanks for sharing, I'm so glad you're joining in & can't wait to see what you make.

  2. Very ambitious! Can't wait to see all of your lovely new bags :) Gave my daughter the book for Christmas - she loves it! The only bag I'm not crazy about is the "spare Tire cover". Haha - I'm sure you know exactly the one I mean :O)
