Happy spring! Buttercup purse

happy spring!!
first day of spring
my daffodils are blooming!


and my new spring accessory, the "buttercup bag" from a free pattern on madebyrae, which i made from a $5 thrift store wrap skirt purchased yesterday.

the skirt was lined with matching fabric- perfect for the lining of the purse. there was easily enough material remaining for two more bags
