Basic Skills Necessary:
- If you can sew a straight line, then you can make this bag! This pattern assumes a basic level of sewing knowledge, and walks you through a few bag-making basics whilst creating your own fab purse.
This mid-sized purse is just perfect for a dressed-up occasion, or your next day at the Races! Featuring a smart handle and accessorised with a clip on silk flower, it can be as fun and frilly, or as elegant a bag as the occasion demands. This purse is Fat Quarter friendly and features a simple inner pocket and a magnetic clasp closure and is very quick and easy to make.
As the 'daughter' half of a Mom and Daughter design team, I wanted to make a purse that was quick and easy. It also had to be Fat Quarter friendly, whilst still being funky and modern and we think this is it!
