Description

I'm jumping on the Weekender Bag bandwagon. :)  I can't resist that beautiful shape!  A couple of months ago, I started a pinterest board, pinning the fabrics I wanted to use, and blogs with helpful hints.  I wasn't planning on making it anytime soon, because I just have so much on my plate right now.  BUT...my husband and I are going away for a couple of nights in May to celebrate our anniversary.  So, I figured I needed a beautiful bag to take with me.
 
I just started cutting into everything yesterday.  I'm planning on taking my time with this baby, since that's been the one piece of advice that I've seen from just about everyone who's made this bag.
 
*EDITED*
 
I finished the bag!  Yay!  Blogged about it here - http://sewkellysews.blogspot.com/2012/05/ab-weekender-bag-i-did-it.html

I love those Outside Oslo prints you chose! I think they'll be perfect on this bag.

Fabric choice has always been my "difficulty", but yours is perfect. I am inspired to make this bag.

I was just thinking about this yesterday and wondering if you finished! Looks wonderful - I love how it turned out! Thanks for sharing all your changes and linking up to the other blogs in your post. I really want to make one of these now.

I love this bag so much! Really, so, so much. You did an awesome job on it. I've been wanting to make one of these, but I'm so intimidated.
Yours is really beautiful, and I love where you used the different fabrics.
