Get Ready For The Amy Butler Beautiful Belle Sew Along

The first Sew News issue of 2014 is now available! And it is full of great information, wonderful tips, and 
 and my little article!!!! I'm so excited!!! I just realized that this bag does double duty for Jungle January!!
 I made this bag months ago and now I have it back in my hands and I can finally enjoy using it.
Just to give you an idea of the size, I've included a picture of the bag over my shoulder. You can see that it's large, but not too large.
Inside are an abundance of pockets for anyone who is always on the go. There's room for everything from diapers and a bottle, to your flip flops for that impromptu pedicure and there's even a special pocket for your cell phone! Even with all these items, you can still find room for all the other necessities that are a must in everyone's bag.
If you would like to make the bag and sew along with me, starting next week, the week of February 3, 2014, there will be a new video up each week to help walk you through the process of making your own bag. A special Flickr group has been set up, you can find it here, http://www.flickr.com/groups/sn_sewalong1. Join and post your pictures. I can't wait to see your creative fabric choices! You can find the Sew News newsletter here and the blog post here where you can get information on the sew along and how to join the Flickr group.
Now, I've saved a little treat for last, I have an extra copy of the current Sew News Magazine
and I would love to share it. So, leave a message on this post if you would like a chance to win. I will announce the winner this upcoming Friday, January 31st.

  6. Congratulations Rhonda - your bag is super, with all the pockets inside. I would loved a copy of this magazine but am reluctant to suggest my name for a chance to win, as I live in Australia - not fair to you to pay postage to overseas destinations. I'm glad you are getting "known" - you have worked hard for your opportunities.
