I'm Janimal, happily gainfully employed Momma to a sweet girl. Livin' it up in Atlanta with a great husband and a good job. Sometimes I make stuff and here's my spot to show it off! Life is good, so I'm sharing....

Momma's Got A New Bag!

Momma's got a new bag!

Here is my lovely new Birdie Sling (
pattern by Amy Butler).

Recognize the fabric? That's the Ruby Star Rising fabric I used to make Delilah a dress back in THIS post. Ruby Star Rising was designed by a lovely local Atlanta artist, Melody Miller, and was released by Kokka. Isn't it just the coolest?

As for the pattern, it sewed up pretty easily. The body of the bag is lined with fusible fleece which gives it some body, and there are nice roomy pockets inside. This bag is HUGE! I took it out with Delilah and couldn't believe how much stuff I managed to fit in there.

I will definitely be making more Birdie Slings. The pattern was easy to follow and I think would be suitable for a beginner.

Sorry I haven't blogging lately. Just busy with life. I appreciate everyone who stops by when I do write a post.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Love it! Giving me a big bag is dangerous - I just find more crap to stuff in there.

  2. Beautiful bag. I've been a little afraid of attempting to make a bag, but I might have to try this :)

    I'm featuring this project on my blog tomorrow! www.JensOwnRoad.blogspot.com

    Thanks for visiting my blog! For the t-shirt dress follow that link, they put the neck and sleeves in like I did on my dresses. And their tutorial is great!

    cute bag btw, I have that pattern but have't wanted to splurge on all the yardage to make it! :-)


I love comments!
