i love yellow. especially when paired with gray. i bought this gray and white fabric a while ago at IKEA of all places. i didn't know what i was going to make with it but i knew i liked it. the yellow is an old sheet from my mother-in-law. i used the buttercup bag pattern.
i made a few changes to the pattern- enlarged it by 30% on my copier and then added an additional two inches in length, much longer strap so bag can be worn across the body, extra pockets inside, added a interior band of the exterior fabric along the top of the bag.
i also made a matching accessories bag for all the little items that are usually buried at the bottom of my bag. my most favorite has to the be the key tether i added. i will never again have to dig to find my keys!
i love that the yellow is like a little surprise just for me. though i wish i had made the bag a little bigger. it's already pretty full!
