Good morning! Isn't it a beautiful day? I was a bit worried yesterday afternoon when it suddenly became freezing cold and very grey again, but this morning is glorious sunshine again. I'm feeling quuite chirpy today because yesterday I made a bag and I'm so pleased with how it turned out.
It's the buttercup bag which is available for free here. As it's a free pattern, it's for personal use only, so I can't sell this design but I don't mind one bit because it's actually the perfect size for me (I prefer small bags) so I can imagine making this in all sorts of different fabric combos (a different one for every occasion perhaps!!) and it will be lovely for gifts too. This is the most complicated bag I've ever attempted - only because up till now I've only ever made very simple tote type bags with straight edges - but actually wasn't too tricky at all (once I'd got my head around the pleats and how to pin the curvy bits!) It was also the first time I used interfacing and magnetic snaps and, whilst there are probably a few little details that I would do differently next time, it still turned out remarkably well for a first attempt.
Have a fab weekend everyone!
