I started by purchasing the daffodil design from Embroidery Boutique more than a year ago. (that's how long I have been thinking about making this bag). Then I purchased about 12 different fabrics in yellow and green. I wanted a patchwork look, my inspiration was a bag made from a jelly roll (2.5 inch strips of fabric). I pieced all the fabrics together and made up the bag as I went along. I top stitched the strips with a decorative stitch and alternated yellow and green thread. I appliqued a free hand circle I cut from a lid (honest) with the daffodil applique on it and then top stitched it to the bag. I lined the inside with one of the yellow fabrics, added a ruffle at the top, a velcro closure, and long strap so I could carry it criss cross. Ta Da.
