The Cosmo Bag is one of the patterns in Amy Butler's new Style Stitches book dedicated to bag construction. The perfect size for carry-on or weekend getaway, the Cosmo Bag pattern - according to Ashley - was very straightforward and the instructions were easy to follow.
You have the option to make long or short handles (we made long handles) and features deep pockets on the inside of the bag and along the exterior sides. Ashley loved the trim detailing on the exterior pockets. A covered button put the finishing touch on the closure.
We selected three different fabrics for the bag. The exterior is Amy Butler's Disco Flower in Chocolate from the Soul Blossoms collection, and we used two fabrics from Liz Scott's Sugar Pop line: Dot Dot Eggplant for the handles, trim, and button, and Mod Trees in Pink for the interior lining.
We loved the way this bag turned out so much that we have created a custom Cosmo Bag kit!!! The kit features ALL of the materials that you will need to make an exact replica of our CityCraft version: the fabric, interfacing, notions, AND you have the option of buying a kit with or without the Style Stitches book.
Check the kit OUT and happy crafting!!
