Just in the Nick of Time

I just finished this bag for the Amy Butler Sew Inspiring Contest.  The cut off for entries is February 29.  Whew!  Just made it.


I used one of my favorite vintage mid century barkcloth fabrics.

I took Amy’s Kimberly Bag pattern and modified the size of it. 

The reverse side is a different placement of the fabric pattern.


I love how this zebra print cotton coordinates with the barkcloth.


It’s loaded up and ready to hit the road tomorrow!

  1. Good for you! What a hip-looking bag. You’re right about the interior print working well with the exterior.
    Congratulations 🙂


  2. Oh my goodness – that is a GORGEOUS bag!! The fabric is really amazing and it looks great sewn up in that pattern.
    I love it!!


  3. Oh, I love vintage barkcloth so much. That is a great one, and your lining choice is perfect. Fab-u-lous!


  4. That is a truly awesome bag, Suzy! I like also that you didn’t use Amy’s fabric as a lot did. I think that barkcloth fabric is the best. I hope you win!


  5. Oh yeah!! It’s fantastic–I absolutely love the fabrics you chose–perfect! Good luck with the contest, I think you have a really good chance!
    Smiles, Karen


  6. Great bag! I thought you were entering the other one. I had a lightning bolt of inspiration (pun intended) and decided to make an entry as well. Just got it in yesterday, whew! I will be featuring it next week on the blog.
    Great finds from Victoria’s Buttons!
