Butterfly Sling Bag Finish

Or as I am calling mine...

The Puppy Love Sling bag.  I was a little worried/scared to start on this bag to begin,but once started it went pretty smoothly,for most of the bag construction.

When you turn the twist lock and open the bag,there is a zipper pocket,an ID window pocket,and another pocket below that.  You can see my phone peaking out of the last pocket.  There are also two magnetic snaps which hold the bag together.  One of the other ladies who made this bag added a little tab to keep her phone in the pocket.  The next one I make will have that addition also.

This is the inside view of one of the two top zippered pockets,there are six card slots in each of these two pockets.  Great for all those loyalty cards everyone seems to have nowadays.  I filled them with my business cards so you could actually see the slots.

Towards the end of the pattern I did have some issues,but that was all me,and my having a hard time with understanding patterns.  So after re-re-re-reading the pattern,and looking at the photos,and thinking about how I have sewn other bags,I was finally able to figure it out :)

When its all said and done,I will be making this bag again.  It is a perfect bag for the essentials,when on the go and you do not want to pack around a large bag.  It would also make a great bag for a night out on the town!  (the heart twist lock looks gold but is really silver)

This was entry # 51 in the goal link up.

  10. This turned out really sweet! I just got my hardware but will need to wait till the end of the bag of the month so I can get the pattern.
