Style Stitches Bag #3 – and a meetup!

 I finished another bag in the Amy Butler book Amy Butler’s Style Stitches: 12 Easy Ways to 26 Wonderful Bags – it was the zipper pouch.  I made the “small” and it was much bigger than I pictured – here it is in comparison to my hand:

But still, it was cute.  And I liked the challenge of making something with a zipper (side note, I just found 30 zippers at a thrift store for $3 total – score!)  – -

Fun and cheerful – I thought about adding a ruffle or a few fabric flowers, but I ended up keeping it plain.

 Now, want to know something weird – – last month’s bag (found HERE)I entered in the Sew Along and randomly won the prize – wahoo!


Well, that’s not what was weird – this is:  I sent my address to Bree and it turns out we live less than 15 minutes from each other – who knew!?!!  So we met for lunch at a local crepe shop – me, Kate (my cousin and behind-the-scenes blog support), and Bree (check out Her Blog HERE)

It was a fun time!  I have yet to make something from my prize of fabric, but when I do I’ll let you know  – – oh, and another challenge on a different blog, using the same book:

    How fun! Is this the cousin you always dress alike?! You both have pink and a gray jacket, flowers in the hair and a floral purse!
    Total score on the zippers and the pouch colors are fabulous!
