Specs: Fabric from Hancock Fabrics, both are from their line. The exterior fabric has orange, green, and yellow in it and is called Anemone. This took me about 2.5 hours to cut out and sew.
I used a white fabric with lilies of the valley on it for the lining. I wanted to find something with ferns on it, but didn't like the choices. Look how adorable with my Sockapaloooza socks stuffed inside (I'm halfway done with the heel flap)! This is the Madison Uptown bag from Amy Butler, and I thought the pattern was well written and easy to follow. If I make another one, I would add interior pockets. The only thing I don't like about it is that it calls for a velcro closure. The bag is swank. Velcro is not. Also, I have nightmares about velcro that go back to my synchronized swimming days (yes, you read that right. I was a Dolphinette) when I had to sew endless velcro onto sequined bands for costumes. I'm not sure what, if anything, I'm going to do about replacing the velcro. I'll just live with my pretty, new Uptown bag.
