Hi! My name is Kim U and this is my first round in the sew-a-long. I've been knitting for about a year. I learned how to sew in high school, when I actually made a skirt (which I didn't like and never wore). Since then, I've mostly sewed stuff like curtains, pillows, and cat and dog beds.

I haven't picked out a bag yet. I'm leaning towards the Amy Butler swing bag, but I've also got two books waiting for me at the library that looked interesting -- Designer style handbags by Sherri Haab and Making Handbags by Ellen Goldstein-Lynch. If I do the swing bag, I want to order some Amy Butler fabrics too, otherwise I'll use some fabrics from my stash.
