I finally tried out the free buttercup bag pattern over at Made by Rae! It’s been on my to-try list for ages. I actually don’t have much in the way of cute quilting cotton, but I’m thinking of making one (or a few) for Christmas gifts, so I had to make a practice one for myself, right? Field test it a bit? :)
I bought a remnant of brocade on a whim years ago, and used suedecloth for the lining. I have a ton of it from my diaper-making days. It came together pretty quickly, and I think it looks super cute, but am I alone in thinking it needs some interfacing? As written, it’s made with quilting cotton for the outer and inner, and even with the thicker fabrics I used, it’s very floppy. But, you don’t notice it much while you’re holding it, just when you set it down.
“But you already have a purse,” says my husband. “Hahahahaha!” I say. Now I have 2.
