Pattern Description:

This is such a FUN bag to make! I love being able to put together multiple fabrics to make a real statement with the bag I wear. When I first saw this fabric I knew it had to be made into a pleated bag to really show it off and I love how it turned out. The combinations can be endless. This is a great pattern to use some of those very special pieces in your stash, or that new fabric you spotted in the store, but did not know what you were going to do with it, but you love it..you could make one of these bags! I hope that you have a great time making this and enjoy all of the compliments I am sure you will be hearing.
