Buttercup Bags

Just in case you haven't heard of The Buttercup Bag, ***here*** is the tutorial, from Made By Rae. And I also used ***this*** tutorial to make the bag a bit bigger, add a zipper, and cell phone pocket.

It seems like everyone is making these bags now, I have seen them on lots of blogs and even on Etsy! I love them... haven't made any for myself yet, but here are two that I made for gifts:

This one is for my mother-in-law. I haven't given it to her yet, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't read my blog. So I think it's safe to show now :)

I made this one for my mom's birthday. She got it last weekend. She likes it, woohoo!!

Now I just need to make one for myself!

Your sewing is just spectacular. I mean really....I sew a ton and I can't get over how perfect your work is. Not a single stitch out of place. I'm still swooning over the baby shoes. Just swooning!!! I think I have showed every crafty woman that steps into my house them....over and over. Many thanks for the link : )

The Buttercup bag is one of my favorite patterns! I've made 3 of them so far and have another one I need to make in the next week or so! :) I like the modifications you made to the one with the zipper!
