I have been wanting to make the buttercup bag for such a long time now.  First, I was waiting for a tutorial on adding a zipper.  And then, life just kinda got in the way.  But now, I've finally done it!


Here's what I did differently...
1.) Enlarged 125% because of all the comments of this being a bit small as is.  For me, 125% turned out perfect.
2.) Added a zipper, but did not follow the tutorial at all.  For the zipper I added a "placket" (not sure if this is the right term).  I modified the lining portion to be two pieces, like the outer portion of the bag.  I sewed the zipper between the two parts.  The placket added some width to the bag so I had to add a little piece between the upper portions of the outer bag instead of just sewing them together.  A little fudging, but it worked. 
3.) Off-centered fabric covered buttons as embellishment. 



Fabric: Amy Butler - lining: Midwest Modern 2 sky/fresh poppies
                            outer: Daisy Chain Clematis/grey

Haha! I was actually thinking, "What if someone mugged me and stole my new purse just the day after I made it?" as I walked to pick up my sushi for dinner at the restaurant just a block away.  I don't live in a bad area or anything.  Just letting my mind wonder too much and loving my new bag.

Thanks so much!  You should totally make it Jatoha.  You'll love it once you're done. 

Noisy_penguin - the 125% increase worked perfect for me.
