 Buttercup Bag

Buttercup Bag

I knew as soon as I saw this pattern that I must make it! The only difficulty was choosing the fabric. I ended up using “potting soil” linen/rayon blend from Joanns with Heather Ross’s Mendecino as trim and lining. I love it! This is a great pattern for beginners. I did interface the whole outer bag and I’m glad I did. I feel like it adds much needed stability. I also did the pleats wrong (oops!), but really, you can do them however you want. I know I’ll be making this again. I wanted to add the cute little button thing, but mine turned out so crooked and ugly. I think next time I’m going to take the time to trace the stitching line onto the fabric. I’m hoping that will help.

    Love your fabric choice. I, also, still have this pattern on my list of things to make. Maybe, next months 😉 If I can decide on the fabric that is!
