I have had this idea for a while now. I have wanted to shrink down Amy Butler's Birdie Sling bag. So today I went to Kinko's and had them shrink down the pattern by 25%.
After making the bag tonight, to me it looks like the bag is much smaller then only being reduced by 25%. I was a little worried after I finished the bag that it would be too small, but luckily its perfect.
A perfect purse size that fits under my arms and holds all of my stuff. The only thing is that I wish that the opening would be a little bit wider.
Maybe I should have shrunk the pattern down by only 20%, I don't know. I didn't think that it would turn out this small. Maybe the lady at Kinko's messed up?
Still came out nice though, and finally I did some sewing!! Yeah to that.
