My journey with the sewing pattern is getting better and better. I bought a pattern a while ago for an Amy Butler bag...and yes i put off making it for that time because of my pattern phobia. The finished bag is good but i will make some changes when i next make it. If you are making a bag with stiff interfacing it is very tricky to get it perfect. I would recomend adding it in at the end. Dispite that i will be useing this bag because i love it regardless of its imperfection's.
