Project #2 - The Buttercup Bag

I am still just loving this new world of sewing, and I'm already longing for an entire day to dig into a new project!  I hurried home Tuesday night to get working on my first "solo project," one that was first on my list to attempt - the Made by Rae Buttercup Bag.  Love it!  Even more helpful was Couterier Mommy's video tutorial for the bag.  (I also learned a lot from watching her other tutorials about the importance of pressing and pinning.)  It took me about 5 hours to complete it, and I only called my grandma 3 or 4 times in the process. :)   I've been carrying it around everywhere, and I can't wait to make another one!  Currently I'm working on a ruffle to attach to it as well.  Hopefully, thanks to all you super creative lovelies out there, I can keep the projects coming!

I have made a few of those buttercup bags, ones of them using the same fabric! I think I even paired it with the same blue fabric inside! funny. My three sisters have been fighting over it! (I've been adding a layer of felt inside the bags and really like the support it adds)

Great job! After getting compliments on the Buttercup bag I made myself, I made a slew for all of the women on my Christmas list last year.
