FO: Buttercup for Jenny

The beginnings of a Buttercup

I've been wanting to try the Buttercup pattern for ages. I thought I might give it a go for the Goodie Bag Swap, but I ended up going in a different direction.

Then, my friend Jenny said she was headed to Seattle for a month-long course, and I thought that was perfect excuse to make her a gift.
Of course, she's already left, and is only two weeks from returning. I finished Saturday and gave it to her husband (also my dear friend), and now she'll have a gift when she returns.

Timing doesn't always cooperate with intentions, does it?

FO: Viewfinder Buttercup

I knew Jenny would love the Ruby Star Rising View Finder fabric, and Michael Miller's love birds just called out to be used. This bag came together in just a few hours. There is a tiny bit of curve sewing, so be prepared for that!

Also, there are two options to obtain the pattern. You can download it for free (this is what I did), or you can purchase the pattern with two sizes, and a license to sell your finished bags.

  4. OMG so totally cute! I'm moving in a few weeks and my sewing machine is already packed away, but after I pull it out I'm going to use it. I swear! This will be the summer I learn how to sew!

  9. "Timing doesn't always cooperate with intentions, does it?"

    Almost never! LOL. You're such a sweet friend for finishing it for her anyway. If it was me I'd probably have lost steam on it and it would have ended up in a works in progress box. :P

    I love that viewfinders fabric . . . I've got to get my hands on some!
