Archived Project: Mel’s Buttercup Bag

May 29, 2009


I was just dying to use all the beautiful fat 1/4s I bought from the Craft Fair a few weekends ago. I have started with this cute bag and will follow with a matching wallet soon. I enlarged the pattern by 115% and added a central zipper pocket and elasticated pouches for my cell phone and mp3 player. I also added some domes to attach my keys to because I am always rummaging around for them! If you are going to try this bag with lightweight fabric then I recommend interfacing every piece to help it hold it’s shape. Sorry about the pictures, photographing a bag is harder that it seems!

Materials notes

Amy Butler print fat quarters, plus some plain orange cotton too. Lots of zippers, interfacing, domes and a magnetic purse catch.
