Amy Butler's Style Stitches Sew Along with Bree - March -Origami Bag Set

This month's Style Stitches Sew Along with Bree is the Origami Bag set. I've reached out the Ruby Star Rising again as I just can't get enough of this cute fabric. Notice the aqua ZIP...yikes I've never done a zip before, so major trepidation!

Suprisingly enough there was no trauma involved and in less than an hour I have the first of my set completed!! Bonus. Super quick and easy and extremely cute, even if I do say so myself! Here are various shots of the finished extra small bag, there are no witty comments or stating the obvious, just photos :)

This was such fun to make I'll definitely be making more of the bigger sizes too :)

  4. So cute! I can't believe it only took an hour to make... mind you, it'd take me about 6 hours. I wish I'd joined in this SAL, but I can't really afford the materials so it's probably for the best. I'll just continue to drool over your bags!

  6. I adore that fabric you used, especially the one with the vintage ladies. I almost broke down and bought that fabric for myself so it's nice to see you use it here. And I'm so jealous that yours only took an hour! I swear it took me that long just to get through the first couple of steps, never mind the hassle of getting the gussets just right. Good job!

  7. Thank you all for your lovely comments :) I do love this fabric! It just seems to make every item made with it look special. I was very fortunate/lazy that this fabric meant I didn't need to patch the exterior pieces which I'm sure made things a lot easier. When it came to the gussets I just sewed and chopped, all very cavalier but in this small bag it worked a treat. I guess I'll have to be more careful when it comes to the bigger bags.
