Amy Butler

Birdie Sling

**Amy Butler's one of the newest sewing patterns: Birdie Sling**

I do have to admit that the most influential designer for me has been Amy Butler. I still remember the moment where I encountered her fabric for the first time. It was at a local fabric store in Seattle. I was absolutely stunned at her designs and had to grab some even though I didn't even have a sewing machine back then.

I use many different kinds of fabrics for my sewing projects, but pretty much 90% of projects that I am very satisfied with are the ones that involves her fabrics. For instance....

Big Tote Bag


bag with Amy Butler's fabric

Patchwork Purse

Kiss Chocolate Bag

Bag with Amy Butler's and Joel Dewberry's fabric

My first handmade headband

And I even made a headband using Amy Butler's fabric!

I love, love, and love her designs!!!!!
Thanks for reading!!
