Can't Go Wrong...

... With an Amy Butler Birdie Sling. Seriously. I love this pattern. It's simple and makes a great bag - the perfect size and stability. I've given finished bags as a gift several times over the years.

This one is a gift for my grandma. She travels frequently, and I can see her using this on one of her upcoming cruises.

The fabric is Joel Dewberry's Heirloom. The color palette is cheerful but not too youthful - it's a perfect balance for the gift recipient.

What about you? What's your favorite go-to pattern for gift giving?

  1. I really like to make mug rugs. They are small and cute and are a great way to use up scraps. I usually start by purchasing a mug and then design the "rug" to match.
