The Buttercup Purse by Made by Rae Pattern Sizing:
Small purse with magnetic snap closure and shortish strap. Approximately 9 inches across by 7 inches long. Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, but I opted not to add the decorative button flap and the inside pocket.
For each purse I used a cotton fat quarter and either more quilting cotton or unbleached muslin for lining. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I omitted the inside pocket. I stitched the strap into the top seam rather than sewing it on at the end like the instructions say. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes. I've made six so far (I only have pictures of two) for my three daughters and a few for birthday gifts for their friends. Conclusion:
This is an easy pattern to follow and can practically be made with scraps.
It makes a cute, easy, little-girl gift and it can be embellished so many ways.
