For my birthday I got a Janome Sew Mini from my parents....and below is one of the first projects I made with it:
It's a buttercupbag! The pattern I found on the net. It's from Rae. You can find it here:

Best of all: it's free! I made an enlarged version of the bag and changed a few things....but still really easy to make. I left out the pocket inside, but added ribbons for closure.
To decorate I added a flower. You can find the tutorial here:
