Since I made Amy Butler Birdie Sling bags for my sisters and myself (see here, here, here, and here), Mom wanted one, too. Except she wanted a zipper in hers and she is kinda picky with colors and patterns, so I drug my feet for a long time. Last week, I got her to pick her own fabric out, and then she decided a magnetic snap closure would be good enough.
I love the crisp, summer colors here with the aquas and blues. It still has some browns to make it more neutral and easier to match, though. I made the downsized version of the Birdie Sling like I made for my sister-in-law for Christmas. I added some extra pockets and loops on the inside, as well as the magnetic snap (which I should have put closer to the top= lesson learned). I think next time I will make the shoulder strap a little narrower, too.
It is HOT here, and I didn't want to leave the air conditioning in my bedroom sewing corner, which is why it has gotten done so quickly. I anticipate a lot more sewing tomorrow, too! :)
