Birthday Purse

We have a few birthday parties this weekend and I wanted to make a little something special for the girls for their birthday.  What?  You are surprised that it isn't an apron?  I know, but think I've outfitted every 4 and 5 year old girl in the Houston area with an apron.  So, I opted to make a purse and I found the perfect bag to make from Made by Rae.  The buttercup bag is the perfect size for these soon to be 5 year old girls. The pattern is available through Rae's blog for free.  I have to say that it was a great pattern and very easy to follow.  Thanks Rae!  It also uses very little fabric and I was able to use some of my leftover fabrics from the aprons I made last year for some of the bags. I thought they turned out cute.  I think I might do some sort of embellishment to it before the weekend.

The yellow one is my favorite. 

The blue one is cute too, it just didn't photograph as well.

  1. CUTE! I've been wanting to try this bag but haven't made time for it yet. But you're right - a little flower or bow or something would definitely go well on the bags!
