Amy Butler birdie sling #2, in home decor weight fabrics and canvas.
Pattern modifications: I did not use interfacing, but instead opted for canvas for the top panels and handle. I did not use the interior pocket pieces, but instead created a smaller, divided version. I still haven’t mastered the gusset technique, but for a great example of someone who has, check out this beauty.

Birdie bag #2 is off as a gift to a coworker. I’m making myself one of these, along with that skirt, this week sometime to jazz up my otherwise drab travel fashion.

  8. Kelli, I absolutely love the fabric print you used and the idea of using canvas makes for a nice strong bag as well as working as a contrast to the print. What great gifts these make. Thank you so much for your kind words about my own version of this bag.
