...Thanks to Jessica at How About Orange for her post on 4-14, and Rae at Made By Rae for the FREE buttercup purse pattern!
As you can see, I had an old vest. It wasn't so pretty (as a vest that is!), but as the buttercup purse it's adorable. I used the tie from the back instead of the placket and buttons. Here are the before and after pics. I Can't wait to start another one! I have some cherry fabric I've been wanting to use.
If you take the pattern and transfer it on to cardboard, you can just trace around the pieces with a marking pen and no more pins!
