The infamous Weekender

We've all heard of Amy Butler's Weekender, right?  It almost seems like some sort of rite-of-passage to make this bag, one that I have wanted to tackle for a while now.  Seeing everybody head to Sewing Summit with their Weekenders made me think even more about starting it soon.  I even have an entire Pinterest board devoted to all sorts of tips & tricks.  Let me know if you have more to add!

Today Jessica shared that she's working on another Weekender, a gorgeous blue, green, grey, & yellow scrappy quilt-as-you-go version, and I found out about a Weekender Blog Hop hosted by Fabric Mutt.  Pink Castle Fabrics is even offering a discount on the pattern (head to Fabric Mutt for the code), add in the possibility of winning prizes, and I'm jumping on board!

I'll be sure to share my progress here; first things first, I've got to pick my fabrics!  I'm going to do my best to  stick with what I've already got in my stash, and I do have a couple ideas.

Until next time...


  1. I am buying the pattern this week - I think this bag will be my christmas present to myself. I am thinking of maybe using those extra Perfectly Perched fabrics I just got and doing somekind of cool patchwork for the outsides :)

  2. Glad you've come to the dark side! Haha, thanks for the shout out :-)

  3. Thanks so much for getting the word out, Bree! I can't wait to see your bag!


Thank you for your comments, I appreciate each & every one I get. I do try to respond to most (if not all) comments, but that's hard to do if you don't have an e-mail in your profile! :)
