Its in the bag

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.
