Okay, I like to sew and I have a thing about the “specifications” of my purse.
It can only have one handle, must have several inside and at least one outside pocket, can’t be too big – you get the picture. So I am always on the hunt for a new purse pattern.
I came across one and thought it looked interesting. I made one out of some (boring) fabric I had just to see what modifications I should make. I added some inches to the bag and the handle and I liked it.
I found some fabric that I knew would make it a lot cuter and here it is. First of all I’ll show you how simple the pattern is. This is the whole bag (well, at least one side).
Here it is with an outside pocket that I added (pattern didn’t call for one). I really wanted to match the design on this side, but didn’t have enough fabric. I figured it is so busy anyway, who would notice. ;=)
It has inside pockets that go all the way around.
So, to close the bag, you slip the long handle through the short side. I added about 6” to the pattern so I could carry it on my shoulder.
Here is a link to the pattern:
