I am a fat quarter junkie, which is especially funny because I donít quilt. I am determined to use up some of the infuriatingly small pieces of fab fabric. I made another Buttercup bag and then enlarged the pattern for a second bag. The first bag went off just fine but I enlarged the pattern for the second 25%. This meant that I could get the outer out of one quarter the lining out of another but not enough left from either to make the strap. I ended up repurposing a green cloth napkin for the top and the straps.

On another note. I could have gotten a strap from the outer fabric if it wasnít for that #$&% label. I folded different ways and any way I worked it the wording would have shown. But Iím pretty happy with the way they turned out. Enlarging the pattern really made it more useful.

Cute bags. I like the contrast of the green so I think it came out even better.

One of my shopping totes has lettering on the strap. But it's just a shopping tote.  Smiley

Cute bags! I love that pattern!
I agree with you about those dog-gone labels! Why can't those things be 1/4 inch or so?! Nevertheless, you did a fabulous job on creating the bag!
Thanks for sharing!
