Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Accessory
Style Classic, Traditional
Eileen Roche on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Upholstery fabric and batting

Eileen Roche on craftsy.com

What are you most proud of? The straps! I love the grommets and the way the buttons keep the straps in place.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use fusible web on the wrong side of the applique fabric (the darker tan fabric) because a handbag gets a lot of wear and tear. The permanent fusing will hold the appliques in place.

It's directions are in an issue of the magazine Designs in machine Embroidery- I think the one with Nancy Zeiman on the cover. When I find it with my stuff I'll let you know. Donna

Hello Morgan You can find the basic instructions for the bag on my blog: http://dzgns.com/blog/2012/09/mini-quilts-make-great-handbags/ There is no real 'pattern' for the handbag. But I think you'll find the instructions a great start on your creative journey. E njoy!
