Gift for Under $5.00 Part I

My sister-in-laws birthday is on Thursday and we are hosting her party. I wanted to make her something fun, but with the limited funds we have right now I had to make it on the cheap. My mother-in-law found this purse patter for free from Made By Rae called the Buttercup Bag. Check her blog out, she has some great ideas on there! I've had this pattern in my files for months now and just never made it. So I got it out and decided I would make this for her with fabric I already had, so this gift was completely FREE!!!

It turned out so cute, that I think I might need to make myself one, only I need a bigger one.

The fabric I had on hand was from an apron I made myself a few months ago and I had some leftover, just not enough to do the whole purse in it, so I had to use other scraps I had. My sister-in-law is an Anime lovin' kind of girl, so the Japanese themed fabric is perfect.

The magnetic clip was from an old purse I have that has about 7 of them on there, so I just cut it out and transferred it onto this purse!

This purse took me a total of an hour and a half to make, but only because it was my first thing to make like this without help from my mom or mother-in-law, so I took it slow. I love it!
