This weekend was my dear friend Erika’s birthday. She loves accessories, and especially loves the color pink. Here is my contribution to her collection of items that meet both criteria!

It’s an Amy Butler Frenchy bag made with Echino fabric. It turned out bigger than I expected, but it’s still cute, and if nothing else, quite roomy!  I would definitely make this pattern again, and will try smaller version – the handbag – next.

    I’m glad it turned out bigger, because now I can fit lots of diapers in it! Thanks again!

    I’ve made both…the handbag is a good sized “smaller” purse. Not too small, but not too big. You might want to make the straps longer if you prefer to put them over your shoulder. Maybe the shoulderbag length but at the handbag width.

    OH, and btw, I’m totally jealous you have that Echino fabric…it’s so expensive online now since it’s hard to find!
