One of my customers requested a Birdie Sling (and matching wipes cover) in the fun Poppy Collection by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller. I truly enjoyed making this bag because I haven’t made a Birdie Sling in a while and I just adore the bag. I also love how the Dogwood Stripe and Skinny Stripes coordinate.
If you aren’t familiar with the Birdie Sling, the design is by Amy Butler and it is a VERY roomy bag with 3 pockets inside. The pleats give it a nice polished look and the banded opening offers easy access to the deep interior. This Sling does not call for a closure of any type, but given the depth of the bag, you really don’t need one.

The bag is not too difficult (yet it can be time consuming) and you can pick up the pattern anywhere from Amazon to Etsy.
