Bend the Rules Swap

I am a big fan of Amy Butler and her fabric line. Two weeks ago I purchased a yard of each from the Daisy Chain line. The fabric names are Sweet Jasmine/Navy and Daisy Bright/Turquoise. When I saw them I knew they would be perfect for the Bend The Rules Swap I joined. We are to make the Charmed Handbag in the book, Bend the Rules by Amy Karol. The Sweet Jasmine was used for the outher bag and I used Daisy Bright for the lining, handles and ribbon and button accent. For my added gift, I made the Lazy Girls Wonder Wallet pattern with the same combinations of fabric and accenting with a covered button. I really like the duo and think it will make my swap partner a great summer bag and wallet.
I had not made this bag before but found it easy to understand and put together. I had only one issue and the original printing of the book left out the measurements for the handles and the handle casing. I found a flickr site designated just for this book and the author answers questions and these had already been addressed.
