Oh Swing Bag, how I love thee!
I've gotten my money out of the Amy Butler Swing Bag pattern and then some. Really, I've made at least a dozen by now. I found I could make one out of two half yards, a fat quarter set, or really whatever piece I had and using a pieced construction. It's reversible, is a great size for me, looks good almost empty or stuffed to the gills. I even like that it has an open top so items can stick out if needed. It's a great basic pattern to build on. I usually add a covered button/loop closure at the top, plus a pocket or two.
My latest is really simple, just two Amy Butler (yes I have a lot of her stuff) prints from the August Fields line. These are heavier weight (heavier than her Nigella line) so no interfacing at all required --easy peasy!
Here's a look back at some of the others I've made:
Plus my very first, and still a favorite print of mine, Alexander Henry Mocca
