I finally finished the Birdie Sling today. I had to wait for some fabric to come in, then when it finally did arrive, my sewing machine decided not to work properly. My mom came over and gave it a thorough cleaning and reset the tension and now it seems to be better for the most part. I think a certain little someone in our house had reset a few knobs on my machine contributing to the trouble. I am really happy with the new dimensions. This was by far the easiest Amy Butler pattern that I have followed (and I use the term "followed" loosely). Anyway, I am very happy with the result.
