Teardrop Bag - An Amy Butler Design

Made an Amy Butler designed handbag for the first time!


It's not perfect, but for a first try, it didn't turn out too bad!

My boss and her husband live on a farm, and they've got goats.  She just loves her goats, and she asked me to make this bag out of the goat fabric she had purchased.  And she also asked me to use the hay/straw print fabric for the inside.  It turned up pretty cute!

The pattern for this bag can be found in the following book:

Tuesday Quilters - At the 2012 Portage Cty Fair

Tuesday Quilters is a group for those of us who love to sew & quilt.  We gather the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the home of Patricia J., just outside of Rosholt, Wisconsin.  Tuesday Quilters is a fairly new group, just started this year (2012).  I discovered the group from a sign posted on the bulletin board at the local post office, so I made the phone call to inquire about it, and now I go every chance I get.  I have a wonderful boss, who allows me off work the 3rd Tuesday of every month just so I can go!  :o)

Anyways...this past weekend, Labor Day Weekend 2012, was the Rosholt Fair (Official Portage County Fair), and after getting permission from the local 4H Club, we were given permission to hang and display some of our group members' quilts and table toppers at the fair all weekend.

Here are some pictures from the event...

If you live near the Rosholt, WI area, consider coming to our monthly get-togethers!
We have a lot of fun with show & tell, learning new techniques, sharing tips, hints and ideas, making new friends and socializing with others who share in the same interests.
Send me a message if you're interested and I will put you in contact with Patricia, or you can call the number shown on the first photo in this post!
