I jumped right into it and forgot the pocket  Undecided

I like the pattern.  Added some hardware.  Hate the top stitching.  Mine always looks wobbly.  But I would definitely make another.  Next time maybe with stabilizer.

Did you mean Buttercup Bag?  Those are really popular.  I love your use of a contrasting fabric for the strap and top part.  I just made two myself, for thank you gifts.

And I agree, topstitching can be a b**ch, but it makes it look really finished!

Great job!

The pattern is here:

And, not only that, but, no one but you really notices when it's wonky!!

The fabrics you chose look good together! Accolades for adding hardware- I usually screw that stuff up! I don't think yours looks wonky at all!
Thanks for the link, I've been wanting to make a new bag for fall, this one will be perfect!

FYI I found with the hardware that it gives the bag nice weight.  Without it, it would be very light since there is no interfacing.  Hardware was definitely a plus i think.

I also attach my straps to  hardware in my buttercup bags. I use key chain rings from the hardware store because it's within walking distance and they are very inexpensive.

Also I often use grosgrain ribbon to attach the ring to the bag and then run the strap through it.

I also do this on other purses and grocery bags. It looks more finished to me.
