Pattern Description:

This handbag is so much fun to make. It make look difficult, but it is very easy. If you know how to pleat fabric and gather fabric, you will have no problem making this bag.

Do you hate to gather fabric? Well I have a very easy technique that is full proof to gather the center of the bag. I have made the bag with one fabric choice on the outside, however, you can use three different fabrics if you like or use two. I have included pictures for every step of the pattern.

****NOTE: On this pattern the bottom section has 8 pleats total, 4 pleats on both sides of center. There are pictures of 6 pleat bags. The Red Fabric Bag (Anna Maria Horner Fabric) has 8 pleats.. On this pattern, I added 2 additional pleats. If you want a 3 pleated bag, you can adjust your pleats according, as long as you pleat to the 13" width.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 13" wide at bottom; 16" wide at top; 16" high; handle drop 15" or 31.5 inches total; or create desired handle


  • 1.5 yards of cotton quilt fabric or 1.25 of home decorator fabric; 1 yard of cotton quilt fabric for lining/pockets; 3 yards of fusible or sew-in interfacing; magnetic snap; matching sewing thread
