Yes, this is another buttercup bag. And, no, I’m not yet tired of making bags out of this pattern. It’s a perfect pattern to practice on and try variations. This time I was brave and confident enough of my sewing skills to add a zipper to it!
It’s not just a zipper, it’s a RECESSED ZIPPER which I think is a milestone for a self-taught sewist like me (and maybe one that makes me deserve a pat on the back? No?) Well, it is really much better than the magnetic snap, in my opinion, and it’s cheaper. I also made two straps, front and back, instead of just one at the sides. And because I’ve been meaning to try making fabric yoyos, I finally did it!
Aren’t they just the cutest little things?
This bag goes to Aunt number 2 who celebrates her birthday tomorrow…
