I’ve taken on a challenge issued by fellow blogger JemJam to sew 12 bags from Amy Butler’s new book, Style Stitches, over the next 12 months (I actually took on the challenge just before the start of the new year…but the book just arrived today which is why you are just hearing about it now…plus Tyler was not nearly excited enough about the book’s arrival, and I knew all of you would be). It was just too good an idea to pass up. The bags are gorgeous (as are Amy’s fabrics…I’ll have to make at least one of these using her fabrics). You can keep an eye on my progress, and that of my fellow challengers, on our Flickr site. And of course, you can always feel free to join the challenge yourself (there’s still lots of time in January to crank out the first bag). More on this soon.
