Bend the Rules Purse
I made this purse using a pattern from Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol. It was a pretty easy project to complete (evidenced by the fact that I could complete it). It turned out pretty good. There are a couple things I will learn for next time such as using a stiffer interfacing. The book said to use flannel but since I didn't have any on hand I went ahead and used some cotton batting. It worked out OK but I think I'd rather have something a little stiffer. I love this Amy Butler fabric; I'm a little obsessed with her fabric at the moment. In fact I originally bought this fabric last year to make myself a diaper bag using her pattern from Little Stitches for Little Ones. At the time I think it was a little too advanced for me. I might try it again though. Now that I know I have little boy I can tailor my fabric choice a little better too.
