sew & tell - a little bag

If you are new or need a refresher for Sew & Tell guidelines you can click on the tab above for details on linking up!
Hello friends!  I have a small little project to share with you today.  After my sewing lesson last week I got in a frenzy and cut out about 4 more clutches and a little bag (like this one) for a little birthday gift for a new little friend.  She had an amazing princess party and I thought, what better than to use some pink Eiffel tower fabric for the bag!
 This is one of my favorite prints of ALL time!  I have it in black and white too and am kicking myself for not buying the turquoise one while it was still being printed...
I used a simple brown ribbon for the strap.  And who doesn't love polka dot? 

I've been working on some other projects around the house (So I didn't get to the clutches yet).  My amazing friend Heidi (for whose daughter the bag was made) came over and helped me hang pictures and arrange some things to make things more pulled together.  I'm so happy with the results.  I have plans for that black and white Eiffel Tower fabric that I will show you soon!

I finally figured out how to take pictures of my quilt - but haven't been able to get outside and rig up the clothesline yet.  SO, I'm going to post about it next week, AND I have an AMY BUTLER surprise for all of you (maybe a giveaway?)  And another giveaway on Monday!  And maybe even ANOTHER giveaway and Amy Butler-Fest extravaganza in a few more weeks!  I know! It's all so exciting I can hardly stand it!  Just be sure you come back next week for details!

1. I want this bag it's so cute.

I made a bag this week from the same fabric you used on the inside of yours. I really love your outer fabric too. Great minds think alike! LOL

Carla said...

I love it! YOu are right, the fabric is perfect for the little bag. I'm looking forward to all the giveaways, exciting!

Love the bag and it reminds me I need to get off my behind and finish the one I started.

I love the eiffel tower fabrics, and yes, it's sad that the aqua isn't available anymore!! Your bag is so cute and I can't wait to see your quilt!!! You keep us in suspense! :)

What a cute wee bag! With sons, it's hard to get to make bags for little girls!

Pokey said...

Such a sweet purse and print, I think any girl would love it in any color!
Thank you, Amy for hosting the Sew and Tell Fridays.

Um, love this. The polka dots inside are just as cute as the paris print! So So cute.

Catherine said...

That bag istotally adorable. Love that Eiffel tower fabric and the spots match perfectly. My 10 year old daughter just walked past me as I was typing and said "that's a cool bag"!

Karen said...

Hiya Amy. Glad to see you getting some sewing time. I linked up the new way. Not sure it worked. If it didn't please let me know. Not that I know what I did wrong (lol). This wonderful world of tech stuff makes me feel like an idiot sometimes.

Vicki @ DottyJane said...

Cute stuff Amy! I like the new linky thing:)

Kristen said...

Cute fabric! I love how brown can go with anything! Have you checked on etsy for the other fabric? It might even be on sale! :)

Sarah Craig said...

I have nothing to say about that bag. It is just so stunning. The prints are so Paris. That is a bag of the new generation.

Dayna said...

Oh, how I miss Sew & Tell! Soon! Very soon, Lord willing!

This bag is very cute. I have the black and white Eiffel Tower print, too; but I didn't know it was no longer being printed. Bummer. I'm almost out of it...
