How to make the buttercup bag

Simple Sewing September

Here is a simple project to help build your skills. Made by Rae has a little fat quart bag called the Buttercup Bag, I just love it. It is simple and cute as can be. Plus it has a free pattern. Awesome right! There is tons to learn from this simple bag, so watch the video, download the pattern and get busy. We did this in my beginner class, we had 25 ladies and they all finished it.

  4. How fun! I too love this bag. I love you did it at your beginner class and they all finished. It is the best when you accomplish something in one night. Happiness to that. Love seeing all their different fabric choices too. Happy weekend to you!

  11. Question: When you sew in the lining, where is the handle? Is it between the lining and the outer, or is it inside the pocket? (Hope my question was clear enough!!) Thanks!!

  12. You are GREAT at making a tutorial! I was able to follow it exactly and come out with the end product. GREAT instructions. I'm having fun perfecting the perfect bag for myself. lol

  13. Thank you sooo much for posting this video. I made my very first buttercup bag in under two hours from start (cutting of the pattern) to finish (putting the embelishment) and could have not done it that fast without you... i am definitely a fan of yours now. Again my sincere thanks for this video.

  14. Thank you for the great video. Without this, it was not possible for a beginner like me to make a bag. Finally I made one.

  15. Hi just wondering why you did not use interfacing?
    All the bags I have made called for it. But I love the video
    Cute bag, simple and fast

    1. Interfacing is optional on a bag like this. It's small and has pleats so it should keep it's shape fine on it's own. You can use thicker fabric like duck cloth or you can use interfacing if you want to.. If I were beginning or teaching a beginner, I would leave out the interfacing and just focus on the construction

  17. Thank you for the video. I've had this pattern in my ''to do'' file for awhile but I like to make new things when I can SEE how it's done. My brain works better that way :) Thank you!
