I followed the pattern and used a sew in interfacing for the first bag which I found a little too stiff for my tastes. On the other 3 I used a heavier weight iron on interfacing. I also like how using the iron on interfacing saves you the step of basting all the pieces.

When someone watches your child 40 hours a week the least you can do is make then a Christmas gift. I made each of the teachers at my daughters daycare one of the Amy Butler, Stash and Dash bags. This is the medium size and just perfect for makeup or any other little things you want to stop from disappearing in your ginormous handbag. This pattern is great because you can use up some of the smaller pieces of fabric in your stash or scrap bin. I love how the bag is two pieces so you can mix and match multiple fabrics. The lining on some of these is also a different fabric.
