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.
