pattern: the swing bag by amy butler
fabric: jane sassaman. prairie gothic. midnight. exterior: sunflowers & interior: sweet potato vine
other materials/notions: canvas to line exterior main panels, straps & interior pocket
modifications: interior pocket
date completed: 15April2009
much as i've been enjoying my four seasons. winter. bag (i reversed it to the black mod patchwork fabric as soon as the weather warmed up just a couple of weeks ago), i wanted something smaller, lighter. this swing is the perfect, simple bag. it sits easily on one shoulder and because of the length, doesn't need a closure. i did add an interior pocket the width of the main panel and divided into three sections to hold a cell and wallet snuggly, maybe a notebook or paperback, too. other then that, no modifications really needed!
this fabric is so beautiful. oh my. and fortunately i've about a yard of each left for something else just as spring happy.
so, now i'd better get busy doing that runner and coasters. i've quite a few squares and rectangles cut up, with plenty of scraps yet to use. yummy.
hope spring has sprung your way or soon will. let the sun shine in!
