The Caitlyn Handbag is sized just right for everyday and uniquely styled with peek-a-boo pleats. Instructions included to "Make New" with a combination of organic cotton prints or "Make Do" with a stash of vintage neckties for a one-of-a-kind retro bag. Bag has a magnetic snap closure and interior pocket. This pattern is part of my Make New or Make Do(tm) sewing pattern collection.
My 13-page printable PDF instructions include color photographs, detailed diagrams, glossary and all the assembly directions you'll need to make the Caitlyn Handbag (14" W x 10" H x 2" D).
