Buttercup & Wallet Joy

Here's my version of the Buttercup Bag pattern found at Made by Rae.

I used velcro for the closure since I didn't have a clasp and I used a zipper pocket inside instead of a square pocket. This is a great purse and so cute and small compared to lugging around the diaper bag.

Of course, I "needed" a new wallet, too.

Amanda, do you recognize the pink fabric? Yup, it's a recycled skirt - works great!

That's quite impressive! And I'm happy to have found your blog, since you are my niece-in-law and I don't know you. It turns out that we may have a lot in common. Cool!

I really like it! I plan to make my own, too. Tell me about your wallet. Did you use a pattern you could share with me? Thanks!

Annette said...

WOW! Dedicating your baby on Mother's very appropriate!

I did make my own buttercup bag! Thank you for sharing you pattern! I'm not sure if you saw it or not. I can't wait to get adventurous one day soon and try a zipper.
