Oh that bag is so cute. I didn't remember seeing it before!

Thank you very much to share this.
I've just finished one of this and I was thinking of adding a zipper to the second one I've planned to sew, but I had no idea how to do it.
thanks again!

I am probably going to sound sooo dumb right now...how do you enlarge the pattern 125% to print it out?  I am a little slow when it comes to computers...  Thanks for the help!

Thanks for all your lovely comments everyone!!  Wink

Fantastic instructions on the modifications.  I think this will be my next project!!  Can you tell me what size zipper you used for this bag??

Thank U

I used a 40cm/16" zipper.  It was too long but I just trimmed the end without the metal end clip.  Just be careful sewing over the zipper teeth when sewing on the tabs.  Whenever I go over the zipper teeth I just hand wind the machine.

I am probably going to sound sooo dumb right now...how do you enlarge the pattern 125% to print it out?  I am a little slow when it comes to computers...  Thanks for the help!

You will need a photocopier that copies onto A3.  Then to enlarge, just push the buttons to get to 125%.  That should work.

Another great tutorials! I have featured you on my team blog at: http://carriedawayteam.blogspot.com/2009/03/next-thing-i-want-to-learn.html as well as my personal blog at: http://solsisters.blogspot.com/2009/03/free-buttercup-bag-pattern.html

Guess what I'm going to be learning next now that I have your nice clear instructions?

Great tutorial. After making this bag the regular size I can see exactly why you enlarged it. I am glad I was able to read your tips before trying to assembly my bag. The next one will definitely be a little larger. And, thanks for posting your cell phone pocket instructions, they worked perfectly.
I did make one change of my own. I put a D-ring on a fabric strip on each side and then attached my purse strap to that. I have a clip for my keys and need the d-ring to hook that too. I also put a zippered pocket inside on the other side of the lining.

Very well thought out and expressed.
Thank you!

This is fantastic! And perfect timing, as well, I'm in dire need of a new purse...

Another silly question from another sewing newbie: Can you still make this (enlarger 125%) with a fat quarter (as stated in the original pattern)? Or will you need a bit more fabric?
Thanks Smiley
