Birdie Sling for Sister + a Fish Story

I seem to be on a roll with bags... I just finished this Amy Butler pattern Birdie Sling for my sister, Carrie. She is an up and coming photographer in Tampa, FL and commissioned me to make her a new bag for photo albums and all the odds & ends that she has to lug around. Its made from Michael Miller "Dandy Damask" and inside is an Organic teal blue cotton. After quite a few hours of work, here's the finished bag! Pay no attention to my tiny, yet-to-be planted garden covered in petals... ok, its kind of pretty.



And then there's Justin. (aka the Husband or boyfriend-for-life) He and about seven other Wilson men took a weekend to go fishing and camping in SE Ohio at the AEP reserves. Here's the one photo I found on the camera, I'm told that its a Large Mouth Bass. Apparently its quite large considering what everyone else caught~

The bag is awesome, it should be great for lugging said odds and ends because I can hardly see you behind it! :>

I have some stuff to make your garden even prettier!

Sad, sad fishy.

Nice job on the bag. The blue is a nice touch. I've made this bag several times - it's a great bag but it does take a lot time to cut all of the pieces!
