Sew 'n' Go Quilted Handbag

from Jo-Lydia's Attic
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Sew 'n' Go Quilted Handbag
Sew 'n' Go Quilted Handbag

Pattern Description:

Make your very own one-of-a-kind quilted handbag with optional rickrack trim. Choose three coordinating prints--one for the exterior, one for the interior, and a third for the inside pockets, upper band, and straps. Then set one aside and quilt the other two together with batting in between. Or, you can speed up your stitching by using already-quilted, double-faced fabric for the bag panels. The pattern includes yardage and directions for both options. Optional jumbo rickrack trim adds a touch of whimsy, but you can leave it off for a more tailored handbag..

With multiple pockets that line the inside (3 on each side) and a pocket on each panel on the outside for a total of 8 pockets, this pretty bag has lots of places to stash your stuff. All inside seams are bound so there are no raw edges in sight. Shoulder-length straps make it easy to tuck this bag under your arm.

Tuck an easy-to-make support in the bottom of your bag, add what you need, and your bag is ready to grab 'n' go.
