    • VintageModern Design Challenge Amy's Western Bag

      Added Mar 13, 2012

      Like my other project, Amy’s Bag, this Western Bag began with The Metropolitan IJ758. I’m a cowgirl at heart, with a great collection of barkcloth, so I thought it would be fun to make this Western piece into a fun, kitschy handbag.

      I used the Magic Pattern, Magic Bias Slip for Summer Frocks on page138 of Amy Barickman’s Vintage Notions.
