Buttercup Bag

I knew I had to make this bag as soon as I saw it.

Thanks to Rae at Made By Rae for posting this totally adorable Buttercup Bag tutorial!



I used some birthday fabric given to me on my lucky number 29 birthday by Aunt Spicy. I love the fabric, but I think for this bag a more sturdy fabric would be better. The lining is of course hot pink.

This was my first time doing pleats and using a magnetic snap!

This bag was so fun to make, you can be sure there will be more buttercup bags in my future!

On a side note, the chair the bag is on is one of my all time favorite chairs. It has a long crazy history and its pretty random that I ended up with it. But thats a story for another day!

This is my favorite bag pattern. I have lined a couple of these bags. Try to use a light to mid-weight interfacing otherwise they are too stiff. I love the fabric you chose it's beautiful!

love it! How can you get away with using such a small purse with a new baby? I am resigned to my sucky enormous diaper bag. Anyhow, I have used midweight interfacing (the fusible stuff) and it works wonders. I accidentally bought the non-fusible and will never make that mistake again. You may have to make another bag!
