Buttercup bags

Recently, I've made 2 Buttercup Bags from Made By Rae.

One as a gift for a friend (which I forgot to take a picture of - d'oh! Bad blogger); and another for myself :)


A bit crinkled, but looks good! Oh, iron, wherefore art thou???



I made from the stash, so didn't get cotton to exactly match this quite unusual colour combo. I like the contrast.


The colour here is probably truest to form; but in real life it is more mustardy and navy, not quite this bright.
Thank goodness for sunny days - you don't need a flash.


I was really pleased with the way they both turned out. Because this one was for me, I rushed it a bit more, but I still like it :) I think I've worked it (making the bag) out now, the next one will be even better! It really is an awesome pattern. What do you think?

That bag is such a cute design. Nice job! The nice thing about taking pictures (for me) is that I don't forget what I've made - ha! Reading my blog from a few years ago is like reading something new. :)
