I bought this pattern from amy butler what seems to be five million years ago and since then I've been staring at it try to gather up the courage to try it out. you see... I'm not great at following instructions for things so when it comes to patterns and instructions I tend to run the other way. well this week I finally kicked my own butt and got into gear. I thought i would make "prototype" of the bag before I used any nice fabric. I chose some grey canvas with some spotty yellow for the lining and man I love this little bag.
