The Buttercup Bag

I have made plenty bags but have not made my best friend a bag yet. Shame on me, I know. Problem is that I have actually made her several bags, but none of them were "right". I wanted something really special for her.

A few weeks ago Sew Mama Sew had a Fat Quarter Month and one of the projects featured was the Buttercup bag by Rae of This is the cutest little bag made from just a fat quarter!

Last night I decided to make a Buttercup bag for my friend.

This little bag is an absolute delight to make! I made a few small changes like adding some interfacing to the outer bag, I sewed the handles on before turning the back out and I added another pocket inside.

Not a great picture, but you can see the contrasting lining fabric and two little pockets for her cellphone and a few other small essential items. Perfect bag when you go shopping and just need your purse, cellphone and a few other items. I hope she enjoys her bag. I enjoyed making it so much that I am busy making another two! One for me and the other is a gift. Thanks Rae for a great pattern!
