These days though I can usually get by with just a snack and a few matchbox cars to keep the boys occupied while we are running errands and shopping. I realized it was time to retire my "mommy bag" and look for something a little more stylish and fun.
That's when I noticed the free Buttercup Bag pattern from Made By Rae and immediately fell in love with it.
I was a little unsure about making this bag since I don't have a lot of sewing experience besides watching my mom sew while I was growing up. I'm so glad that I gave it a try! I love the bright colors and it's just the right size; just big enough for my wallet, coupons, snacks and few small toys. If you want to give this project a try you can get the free pattern at Made by Rae.
