my first Amy Butler bag

I wanted to bring a special gift for this special lady who hosted my baby shower last Sunday. So, I decided to make her a little tote bag for carrying this and that. I chose an Amy Butler pattern called Chelsea bags.
I love that the design is reversible, and how could you not love the yummy Amy Butler fabric?!
I picked out the pattern and fabric at a great new shop in Iowa City called Home Ec Workshop. (their website is still under construction). They have a great selection of yarn, fabric, ribbon, and crafting books. Also a counter where you can buy tea and sweets *and* they will be having classes and work sessions in their classroom. I absolutely love this new addition to our local shopping choices.

    Great bag! Amy Butler's patterns freak me out. I'm an awe of anyone who actually makes one of them.

    And that Home Ec Workshop looks awesome. There's something similar in Toronto. Now if only Winnipeg would get it together and get one of these spaces.

  2. Wow! I love that tote!! So cute!
