Autumn Birdie Sling

So, did everyone have a great day yesterday and today? I did!
This morning I did a bit of online fabric shopping (check out all the sales! some people make it too easy :) and then hubby and I saw the new James Bond movie this afternoon - LOVED it!

And all week I've been using my new Birdie Sling. (Look at that stiff handle! all that interfacing, LOL!)

I used two fabrics from Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks collection that I bought specifically to make this bag several years ago. It's good to finally get it made and use it!

I do regret using the cream thread on the brown handle, I think it stands out a little too much but it's fine, I still like it. Soon I'll be making another one for a gift and it will have a brown handle too and I will definitely use brown thread.

For the interfacing, as you know, I got impatient with using a press cloth and decided to do what some others do and just iron it on without it. It seems to be holding up fine so we'll see over a longer time but I'm happy to have taken the shortcut for now. :)

I love it!! I have yet to make a purse - maybe I will try one for myself. I'm in need of a new one. I better start off simple, though!

The colors are great!
