Amy Butler Downtown Handbag

I have never tried the Amy Butler Designs pattern before but I have to say, this was a VERY EASY pattern.

I picked up the fabric at Zoe's Trunk in Chandler on Sunday. The pattern called for 3/4 yard but if I had bought 1 yard, I could have also made the Uptown Handbag. I have "some" fabric left but not enough...unless I make it just a wee bit smaller. I might do that and put the green on the outside with short handles.

Inside of the bag. Next time I will add a cell phone pocket inside.
I used padded interfacing instead of the one recommended for the whole thing. It gives the bag some nice structure and it stands up on its own!

I am thinking holiday gifts.....maybe.
