Oversized Summer Buttercup Bag

Talk about a good morning! I finished sewing a purse! I did all the fabric cutting and prep yesterday morning and got all the sewing finished before 9:30 this morning!

This is the oversized buttercup bag. I was asked a few months ago to do a custom order. The lady had looked online and had picked out something similar to a buttercup bag, so all I did was alter the top peice of the pattern and adjusted the lining peice too. If you purchase the Licenced to sell patter from MADE BY RAE, you get a larger size of the pattern too!

This bag is made with one of my favorite fabrics. I don't know who manufactured it or when it was manufactured. I bought it last summer at a small town quilt shop that is now out of business. I really wish I would have bought more of it! I love the yellow gingham lining too! Just the perfect blend of colors for the summer! I hate using dark linings. You can never see the what is at the bottom of the bag!

This morning I was also able to get the fabric cut to make a knit circle skirt with a yoga waistband for my daughter! I hope to get that done tonight! Fingers crossed that it fits! I am new to working with knits and had to combined 3 tutorials to get everything I wanted into one skirt!

  1. The lining works beautifully with that fabric and gingham is so HOT right now! Great bag!

  2. What a pretty bag! The choice of fabric is close to perfect I have to say. And it is nicely done.
