Farmer’s Market Bag

Another successful bag. The design for this bag went through several iterations, but finally turned out. It’s rather simple and easy to make. Here’s just a picture for now. I might post the pattern later. It holds a surprisingly large amount and it has a very wide shoulder strap so it’s actually quite comfortable even…

Buttercup Bag Part 3 – Wrap up

So, I have now finished the Buttercup Bag. As I mentioned in the first post, Rae from Made by Rae is super for giving us this pattern and I definitely plan on making it again. There were a couple bumps. It also took a while since I was taking pictures the whole time so that…

Beach bag
