Jemellia at JemJam had a fantastic idea and decided to host a monthly sew along challenge using Amy Butler's newest book, Style Stitches. There are basically 12 bag styles, one for each month! I already owned the book, and as soon as I heard about her idea, I decided to jump aboard, something fun for the new year! The first bag is the Cosmo Bag and is pictured below!
The first step for the month is to pick out your fabrics that you intend to use for the bag, and get all your supplies together! I have decided to use Bari J Ackerman's Country Lane line of fabrics for the exterior of the bag. The plaid will be the main body, and the floral will be the trim and handles. You can already see my big button I have created for the bag too! For the interior of the bag I will be using Apron Strings by Karen Stephens, Leaves in Red. Check back towards the end of January to see my finished bag!

Marci, I really love that fabric! I need to find some of it for a future project. Love that you already have your button made, too.
