I know the proud will fall...

...but I really think that when you like to make all of your Christmas gifts (or at least as many as you can) you deserve a little pat-yourself-on-the-back time when four of them get made in August instead of December. Don't you think that's only fair? There, you see, I knew you would agree with me!

Pattern: Buttercup Bag
(Thank you so much Emily for sending me the link to this pattern! I love it!)

Fabric: Assorted quilt shop fat quarters
Lining: White Cotton Twill
Buttons: Why, vintage of course!

I made these for my sisters so shhh! don't tell!

oh, how pretty! I love the shape of the bag and the fabrics you chose. Such lucky sisters you have!
....and, yes, you do deserve a pat on the back. I always say I'm going to start early with the Christmas gifts....sigh.....maybe next year!

Emily said...

I love them! They turned out so lovely! :)

Lillian said...

I especially love the green and blue ones!

Ruth Gore said...

I love these AND the Frenchy bags! And it isn't pride....just pleased with yourself and rightly so!

Marissa and Andrea said...

Great job! They all look wonderful! Yes, it is definitely nice to get that many Christmas presents done this early. :D

I love to make my Christmas presents early as well and have currently finished 4 so I know the feeling;)

May God bless you,
