Buttercup bag

I'm back!
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...


  1. I LOVE it!!! Too bad its so small :(

  2. Turned out great! heres my post on the same bah LOL

  3. Oh Tania that is hilarious! In a sad way, of course.... did you end up with the purse upper being too short (not wide enough)? I had to tack on a couple little pieces of material to make it all line up....
    Melanie, the finished purse is 12 x 7 1/4, which is a decent size, but just not big enough for me. :o)

  4. Love it!! you must have way too much crap, I mean stuff, in your purse if it's too small! LOL
    Very cute purse!

  5. I love it! Great job! Looks like a nice size to me.


I love comments they keep me encouraged :)
