Ever since I got my Cricut for Christmas, my sewing machine has been feeling neglected. So I decided to FINALLY make myself a new bag. Its about the easiest bag to make and the pattern is FREE! Its the Made by Rae Buttercup Bag.
For the exterier, I used "It's a Hoot" by MoMo for Moda. The interier is just red cotton fabric from Hobby Lobby. I found a great video tutorial for making this bag at Couturier Mommy. The video doesn't include the snap or pocket. I haven't put in a snap before, so I found this great tutorial at Little Birdie Secrets.
Overall, I love the way it turned out. A few future improvements would include
-straighter pockets (on my part, they're crooced lol)
-reinforce the strap (maybe w/ fusible interfacing)
-make a bigger version (she does have a larger pattern for sale)
I think I'll make a simple fabric envelope or pouch to match to keep receipts in.
