After enjoying nine blissful days and nights in Maui with my hubby and his parents (our gracious tour guides), sans kids, it was back to reality.
Fevers, colds, strep throat, and cold weather.
I really miss running on the beach barefoot in 20 C degree weather!!!
To combat those blues, I have been searching online for some fun purses to make (which lady can ever have enough?), and came across this cutie:
I had two fat quarters of a cotton that I absolutely ADORE, but couldn't think of anything to make with it. I even went back to the store I got the fat quarters from to see if they had any on a bolt, but I couldn't find any.
So these fat quarters languished in my cupboard just waiting for the perfect project....
Meet the buttercup bag!
It only used one of my fat quarters!
It turned out great, and I think it is adorable, plus I even added a couple extras to the interior.
Only thing is, it is too small to fit all my junk in! Wallet, camera, eyeglass case, cellphone... they take up a lot of room!
So thankfully I have another pattern on standby (which you will get to see in the future) that I can use my second favourite fat quarter with!
Now I just need to find a new home for this baby...
