Man... I glad I forced myself to learn LaTeX last year. It seemed sort of stupid at the time to spend two days reading tutorials and typing up nonsense, but it is really paying off now!!

Buttercup Bag

I made a Buttercup Bag (free pattern!) recently. It takes a fat quarter of fabric for the outside and another fat quarter for the inside lining. I found that the triangle-shaped scraps from the last A-line skirt I made were enough. I did have to flat line the lining fabric to some heavier cotton twill to keep the purse from being too floppy. I also inserted cotton webbing into the handle to make it stronger. The outcome is a nice, small shoulder bag.
