      Okay. First, it's awesome.

      And b. You suck! You were supposed to wait until sewing day!

      Okay, I don't really mean that last part, but dang, lady! Now you're going to have to sherpa ME through it!

      Hmm....Maybe I'll wait to make my next two until you type out those instructions....

      Bwhahahah, I know I suck! I thought about sewing day and waiting until then... but the pattern was taunting me! I think I'm going to try to do my Ikea fab one on Saturday. Maybe. Or I might make a bag mate for Bag. You won't need a sherpa, you can so go it!

      I'm going to try my best to articulate what I did. I hope I can do it!

      Look at that, Monica!!! Gorgeous Weekender :) You did it!! So you quilted yours? What a cool idea! And focusing on the illustrations was an awesome idea, I bet that is a lot easier to follow!

      Where can we get the pattern? Did I miss something?

      It rocks! Well done!!

      You are all toooooo nice! And trust me, if I can make it SO CAN YOU! Seriously, if you take all the pieces and make them into quilted pieces… it's so easy. Cough. Cough. Ok, so much easier. And then I just sewed right sides together, and then next I'm going to "bind" the two inside seams. Once I recover, I'll sit down and type out my hacks. It really was much easier once I decided not to read the instructions and just focus on the illustrations.

      Again, if I can do it… A N Y O N E can! Do it. Do it. Do it!

      It's the Amy Butler Weekender bag pattern. All the info is blogged (link under the photo). Put "amy butler weekender" into the search here at flickr - you will be amazed!

      You did it! Booyah!

      Yay! Awesome! It's a great pattern, you just have to take it slow. (Or at least that's my experience with it.) Binding those inside seams sounds hard. I don't know that my machine would be able to do that.
      Are you making one on Sat? That would be so fun! I would suggest precutting all your fabric/interfacing though. Otherwise you could end up spending all Sat just cutting. And where's the fun in that?

      Great job Monica, really it's so nice! I love the fabric you used. I want to make one too, but I am a chicken. Are you going to the meeting tonight? I'll finally be able to make, hope to see you there!
