Before our trip, I knew I needed a new bag to hold all of my stuff. I love the birdie sling bag (designed by Amy Butler) because it has a great shape, it holds a LOT of stuff, and it’s pretty easy to put together! (Also– it’s larger in person than it looks in the photos I have. Click on the pattern link above to see some pics of it being modeled to get a better sense of the size).
I paired together a print from Innocent Crush (for the body of the bag) with one from Hope Valley (for the handles), and I can’t believe how well the colors work together! I’ve found that Hope Valley plays well with lots of other prints (I used a bunch of Hope Valley along with Castle Peeps to make this quilt).
I’ve already gotten a lot of use out of this bag, and I think I’ll be using it for a long time!
