This week over at The Crafty Bums Sewing Group, we have been set the challenge of making the fabulous Buttercup Bag from Made by Rae. As you may recall, last month I made this bag using my gorgeous teapot fabric, but felt it would be cheating to enter something that wasn't made that week.
Therefore the sewing machine came back out and I hijacked a pair of hubby's jeans to make this denim version. For the lining I found a lovely purple fabric in my stash, which I think compliments the denim well.
I decided that as it was a plain colour, it needed something to liven it up a bit, so after a little look around the web to find a good tutorial, I made the flower out of a jelly roll strip left over from my quilt and finished it off with a button from my collection. I then sewed the flower onto a safety pin, so that it can be taken off if necessary.
I think the overall result has come out really well. What do you think? I am loving the Buttercup bag pattern and I think it's only a matter of time until I buy the bigger pattern for it!
