Pattern Description:

This gorgeous, classic style evening bag is easy to make and will win glances of admiration! You need a straight frame that measures 16.5cms (6.5ins) wide. (I sell the frames on line www.sewchristine.org )

If you have never attempted a frame bag before, this is a great one to start with because you only have to attach this bag across the top. The sides are sewn and the hinges sit outside the frame.

  • 50cm cotton for lining
  • 50cm Vilene Thermolam Fleece interfacing
  • 16.5 straight metal frame
