Sunday sewing

Today, I’ve taken time out from sewing for other people and i’ve had a go at something that I spotted a while back and really wanted to try out.

This is a Buttercup bag as designed and created by the very super talented MadebyRae.

I loved this bag and really fancied having a go myself. I’m being a bit more adventurous now with the sewing (lol!) so using my Cath Kidston fabric I bought a couple of weekends ago I set out, downloaded the pattern here (from the very generous Rae – Thanks Rae!) and had a go. What do you think? I’m hopefully going to make a couple more of these for Christmas gifts as I am so pleased with it. It took me about 3.5 hours all in all and that included unpicking time as I stupidly stitched the wrong sides together so I had exposed seams when I turned it the right side out. It’s fully lined inside with a mint green cotton fabric and for a first attempt i think its pretty cute!

Enjoy your Sunday evening {sig}
