My cousin Rachel turned 19 yesterday and we were invited to her parents place for afternoon tea today to celebrate. Normally we just give the cousins cards on their birthdays, but I had nothing to do this morning and felt like making something.. so I made her a buttercup bag!
Too bad I didn't take a decent photo of it before I gave it to her
It's made with quite a heavy striped black/grey denim. My brother was given a bolt of it for some reason ages ago, and he was nice enough to pass some on to me.
I lined it with some hot pink/black fabric. The denim makes the bag hold it's shape quite nicely so I didn't bother with any interfacing.
The only issue I had was top stitching around the top of the bag. My machine did not enjoy that at all. I ended up having to do it half a cm further down than I normally would have because I couldn't get the machine to feed it through evenly higher up. My walking foot was making quite the clunking noise as it went too.
I think maybe I need a new machine with more grunt! Right Jase? :P
Thanks for making my morning a little bit better with this great article!!
