The Cosmo Bag

It is finished! I really like this bag! It’s the Cosmo bag from Amy Butler’s Style Stitches. I made it for the Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge. However, this was January’s Bag and I didn’t finish it until the first weekend in February 😦 Oh well…

It’s a big bag…It’s similar in size to the Field and Tote bag but I think I like this bag better. It was certainly easier to make than that bag! I like the size, I like the big pockets and I love the big button that matches!

I’ve never made a bag where you pull it through the handles – that was different, but it worked out pretty well. The directions were well done. The only thing I found somewhat confusing was that it wasn’t clear to me how to cut out the handles, but luckily I didn’t cut them out at first and waited because what I thought I should was right and the directions actually were right, they just weren’t overly clear to me. Other than that – the directions were great.

I also really enjoyed this fabric. I got it at Hobby Lobby. There were 4 fabrics all in the same color scheme so even though the pattern only called for three I bought a bit of the fourth and used it both on the inside of the exterior pockets and the interior bottom of the bag. They also had coordinating ribbon that I was very tempted to buy but I refrained because I wasn’t sure what I would do with it!
