Pattern Description:

Bella Bags for the fun loving, crafty lady. This bag is anything but boring. The look can be anything from classy to sassy from sultry to silly.

Honestly, this bag was the most fun bag I have made. Making this bag will draw the artistic part of you out and let you shine. I think I could keep adding accessories because the ideas keep coming. The bag is not a big bag but it is roomy enough for the necessities...cell phone, lipstick and a wallet but small enough to carry on a walk and not be a bother.

The easy applique techniques used for this project are so simple you will have the bag assembled in just a little while. Cut out the applique pieces, glue them in place using a simple glue stick and then machine stitch close tot he raw edges. Teh hair is simply one piece of fabric cut into narrow strips and left to ravel.

Let the artist in you shine! Detailed explanations, ideas and instructions. Sew, have fun!
