I finished this Basket Bag in Amy Butler’s Kimono fabric for my neighbor. We are going on a field trip with her this morning and I was madly trying to get it done for her. This is the last of my Kimono fabric *sniff* and I don’t think I can get anymore since it’s been discontinued.
For the liner I used some of my purchases from Moda’s Poetic Prints line. I have a few more yards of beautiful pinks and greens from this line that are burning a hole in my fabric basket. I’ll have to make something out of it soon!
For you purse makers out there, I put fusible fleece on the liner (cut 1/2″ smaller all around) so that the pockets have more to hang on to, but when the purse is finished, it’s often bulky on the inside. Should I be making the liner a bit smaller than the exterior? Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks.
