So many fun features on this bag it is sure to charm. Although it is an applique it may just be such a simple applique it may not even qualify as applique. Cut out the shape, glue it to the background panel and stitch around the edges. Add a few stitches with embroidery floss and the decorative panel is complete. The diagonal pockets on the back make the bag as pretty from the back as from front. Lift the flap and find another hidden pocket that is big enough for a magazine, a book, or a notebook. Inside the purse, hanging just within reach is a key clasp so you never have to go digging in the bottom for your keys again. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic Sewing Skills are all that are necessary.
