In Addition to the Bags

This weekend was very productive and fun. My husband went out of town, so my friend Amber came to stay and craft with me. I talked her into making two buttercup bags for her little nieces. They are two and four years old. In addition to the little bags I created fabric flowers from the lining fabric...the look was so cute I had to make a flower for the bigger buttercup bag I created last week.
I have tried making all sorts of fabric flowers. I love the Japanese Kanzashi flowers but have a very difficult time getting them to work out. Instead I tried a different approach. I researched fabric flower on the Internet looking for a tutorial that would produce the cutest little flower. I found it on pinkpaperpeppermints blog.http:// flowers are so much easier than the Kanzashi flowers and they turn out perfect every time, which is more than can be said for the uncooperative Japanese version.
I would like to thank the pink paper peppermints blog and the madebyrae blog for the great tutorial and the free bag pattern. Thanks ladies!
