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 )

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 outside fabric (cotton, velvet, satin etc)
  • 50cm cotton for lining
  • 50cm Vilene Thermolam Fleece interfacing
  • 16.5 straight metal frame

You Will Also Need:

  • Gutermann HT2 Glue
  • Piping cord

I love sewing and making bags and I have a great on-line shop that sells everything you need to make your own bags. I also write tutorials and patterns for bags. You can also see my tutorials in UK sewing magazines. I blog about all of this and more.
