I just finished this Madison Uptown bag from Amy Butler. I thought the pattern was pretty easy to follow, and it only took about 2.5 hours for me to cut out and sew this. I agree with an earlier post that I read about not wanting to use velcro as a closure. I plan to use this as a sock knitting bag (although I'm going to have to carry it as a purse at least on Monday to show it off!), so there's no way I'm putting velcro on. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of a magnetic closure on the same flaps that the pattern uses. There are more pictures on my blog.
What a fun way to spend a Saturday night! Thank you to our hostesses--this was a really good challenge for me!
