Cosmo Bag in Pink

Always looking for that huge bag to carry around everything I need. Amy Butler’s Cosmo Bag from her Style Stitches book fits the bill. It’s listed as and “easy” bag to make but if you’re used to “visual” sewing directions I recommend you read the instructions for this bag several times. When I make another one, I might just take pictures of each step for reference. Another thing that bothers me about her patterns is there are a lot of pieces … a lot of pieces that also need to be interfaced. In this case. /sigh.

Anyway back to this particular bag: I’m a thrift store queen when it comes to finding fabrics and such so this one is no different. I’d been saving up this black & pink chenille type material for a while and when I discovered the book, my quest for a pattern that suited it (what I had of it anyway) was done. I had just enough for the body so I eliminated the side pockets, hit my stash of clearance finds from Joann for matching cotton and went to town. I’ll probably change out the button once I find one I like down the road. When working with the chenille, I serged all the sides too to prevent raveling.

Oh, and it’s in dire need of a good ironing on the handles yet. My bad. :o)
