Buttercup Bag


This is the Buttercup Bag from Made By Rae. It seemed like a perfect project to try out my new piping foot, which worked perfectly. The only thing I would change is that I would use some heavy interfacing on the top piece. The fabric is one of my snow dyes. I may have to wait until next year to do more snow dyes. It looks like the snow is finally leaving us. Nobody is complaining.


Here is a close-up of the piping. I made it from a scrap of fabric that I had on hand. I may add some embellishments but I'm not sure it really needs anything else. But I do have all those beads....

Hi, Joyce -- didn't get blog reading done while away, just catching up. You've been busy as always! Love your red purse, and this one looks so incredibly well made!

Brenda said...

great bag and I love the piping. where are you going to sell all of these?

Lynn said...

Beautifully done, I wonder if those blue beads would compliment this or not?

I just re read your profile and love the quote near the bottom about sliding in sideways yelling Wha Hoo! I'm in for the good ride too! ;-)

I have been experimenting with my sewing machine feet in different applications. I love the edge stitching foot for stitch-in-the-ditch applications. I have a piping foot and need to see what other ways I can use it.

What an adorable bag. I like your snow dyes. The piping looks very professional.

This is a perfect application for the snow dyes! And that piping!!! What a smooth looking seam and line. Are you finding it much easier to work with than the zipper foot was?

When machine quilting a client's quilt awhile back...I noticed that the piping was much easier to stitch in the ditch than a zinger. I was surpised...that's not what I was expecting.
