A great friend of mine is having a birthday this week. For her gift, I made her this bag. I was inspired by Amy Butler's Birdie Sling pattern, but I don't own this pattern, and after sewing her diaper bag and a few other things by her, I was not excited to try another of her patterns. I searched the internet for something I'd like to try and found this pattern for free at Burda Style. It was a little difficult to understand at first because the instructions had been poorly translated from German, but it was very simple once I looked it over. I did add interfacing to make it a little more sturdy and less slouchy, but overall, the pattern was easy to follow.
