If you can stand just one more project with the wonderful Aviary 2 fabric from Joel Dewberry, take a look at the bag I made this week.
I also made it up in a different fabric (this time the Prince Charming collection by Tula Pink for Free Spirit (Westminster Fibers)with a slight variation – I added a base that allows the bag to stand up.
And I made it in a smaller size. Who knows where this fabric came from. It's been in the stash for a long time and back then I didn't pay so much attention to designers. 
Want the pattern to make one for yourself? Find it here, or post a comment and I'll send it to you.


  1. Thank you for providing this pattern. I love the bag.

  2. Glad you like it Beth! I hope you make one (or more) yourself and please share the photos with us.

  3. Really love this bag. You said post a comment to have the pattern sent. Hope this does it. Posted I like it with the blog contest too.

  4. Dear Donna Rae - Oh dear. I notice your blogger profile doesn't include and e-mail address. Please send me a message at with an e-mail address and I will send you the pattern. Thanks for checking out the blog!

  5. This looks like the awesome bag a friend has and loves for travelling because of the interior pockets and adjustable handles. Can't check for sure as she lives several provinces away (yes, I'm from Canada :) dlcsteiner{at}hotmail{dot}com

  6. Dear Anonymous, Does your friend sew? If so, she might have bought my pattern and made her bag. I've been selling it on and since I designed it last summer. Glad you both like it.
