Hey, hey lookie . . .


I am so proud of myself! I have been thinking about sewing Rae's pattern for the Buttercup Bag, which is FREE, for some time. I have a sewing machine that I use to fix things and make drapes and such, but I have never sewn with a pattern. Little Birdie Secrets also mentioned Rae's pattern today so I decided to give it a whirl.

I love this fabric that Miss Becky picked out. She is McCartney's teacher who moonlights at JoAnn fabric. She saw us browsing and I was frustrated with the fabric selection when she asked me if I had been back in the quilting section . . . HOLY MERCY, I was a kid in a candy store! I adored the polka dot liner also.

Anyhoo, the pattern is super easy and I will definitely be making more of these. I increased the pattern by 30% because I carry too much crap in my purse. . . go on over and give Rae some love, and make yourself a cute Buttercup Bag!
