Done. I think.

I finished two more Buttercup Bags (pattern available for FREE from Made by Rae) last night, and now I’m stressing over which one to give to which mom/mother-in-law.  These bags are super fun and easy to make, unless you decide, like I did, to add interfacing, and another pocket, and homemade piping.  The piping really makes the bag, though, don’t you think?

The first bag uses fabric from the “Shades of Blue” line from Moda.  Living in the high plains of the Panhandle, I LOVE that it features Texas wildflowers.

The second bag is from the “Blush” collection of fabrics, also by Moda, and I have to give you a better glimpse of the lining/piping fabric:

It’s adorable, isn’t it?

Now I just need to convince myself that I don’t need to keep one — or both — for myself.  Sigh.

    I love the buttercup bags. I made 2 for myself. You should give those one away and then you will have the experience to make yourself a very good one, not that the other two aren’t absolutely wonderful!

    Oh, goodness. I’d have a hard time giving away the Blush bag! They’re both lovely. Great Mother’s Day gifts!!

    the piping looks great! That is a great touch.

    Wow! Those are terrific bags. Love both fabrics, and I bet your mom and MIL would be thrilled to receive either of them. And yes, the piping really is an awesome addition. 🙂

    I am glad it is you and not me. I would be sorely tempted to keep them both and get the Moms travel mugs!!!

    Your bags are gorgeous, and I’m sure they will be a hit for Mother’s Day!

    Great bags – and you’re right, the piping does make the bag!

    love the blush bag!! I have been meaning to make one of those bags, I have the pattern saved for when my kids go off to college 🙂

  13. 13 Catherine May 8, 2010 at 1:49 am

    Yes it is adorable!! they both are and I think the piping is the perfect touch.

    Yup, I had lots of fun with this pattern, too. I put batting with the outside–does add more work. Love the piping. Maybe just a folded piping (no stuffing) would accomplish the same thing with a little less work? Nice job–they’ll love them.

  15. 15 Kristen May 8, 2010 at 1:45 pm

    You’re right and these bags are very fresh looking!

  16. 16 Kim D. May 9, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    Those bags are adorable!!

    Those are so pretty — I’m off to print out the pattern to try one for myself!
