Kerry, I am in awe! I love your bag. I have the pattern too, but haven't mustered the courage to tackle it. Seeing how awesome yours turned out I am definitely inspired now.
To the rest of you blog readers: CHECK THIS OUT! Kerry is killin' it with this bag and her fabric choices. love it!
"I decided to take on the daunting Amy Butler Weekender Bag. I was really nervous about it after reading a lot of blogs and how people had trouble with the piping and zipper. But once I got going on it it really wasn't that bad. I took the advise of using the stitch witchery for the piping, which helped out a lot. I plan on using this blog to make a handgrip. I also added some pockets and a zippered pocket to the inside. I love the combo of the green, blue, and red in Amy Butler's Lark fabric. I added a small coordinating origami bag for toiletries. I think this will be a fun carry-on bag, now I just need a trip to go on!" -Kerry
