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.
