portabellopixie bag


Just wanted to show you my new bag. I finished it Saturday. I used the ' Portabellopixie' market bags pattern. Don't you just love my owl fabric. I fell in love with it when I first saw it. The was my first time doing piping too, and it wasn't too bad.

It's awesome, Amy! That's a GREAT pattern. When I make myself gather, this bag is one I, too, would like to have, besides the straight market bags which are big and comfy. Very cute fabric and great job on the piping. Fun, fun stuff this Monday. Thanks!

I see why you love this fabric so much--it's sooo cute. This is a beautiful bag and you did a wonderful job--piping and all!

Lovely bag!
oh, about piping, did you use a special feet? I have a vogue pattern in mind with some piping, and was wondering if a special feet is worth it.
