Butterfly Sling Purse Sew Along

I have always been a big bag girl, the bigger the better but the Butterfly Sling Purse is a little bag with the heart of a BIG bag. 

This little lady can hold a deceptively large amount of stuff, which makes it ideal for those of us who carry a little bit of everything. The last time we went to our local amusement park, this bag was perfect; I could get all the stuff I needed inside, but easily wear her on the coasters and not feel like I was lugging around a suitcase. At 9" x 6" you will be glad to trade in your hold everything mom bag for this lady for the day. 

Right now Janelle is offering a 20% discount on both the pattern and the hardware kit to make this sweet little lady, and in honor of the sale I will be hosting a sew along. The sew a long will kick off on October 10th, so you have plenty of time to gather your supplies and be ready to sew with us!
