After the success of the popular "Short & Sassy" pleated handbag, I wanted to make a large version because I'm not exactly a small bag girl. I need more room! This pleated bag pattern features a roomier bottom with a shaped top. As with all my patterns, the separate components allow you to mix and match your fabrics to come up with your own unique creation! This pattern includes full size pattern pieces along with a fully illustrated instructions. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18" wide x 12" tall

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1/3 yard fabric for the Exterior body
  • 1/2 yard fabric for the Lining and Pocket
  • 1/2 yard fabric for Purse Top and Straps

I'm a mom of four who has a passion for making things in my spare time. Call me crazy, but if I didn't have this creative outlet I probably would be! I love collecting beautiful fabrics and using them to make bags, quilts, pillows and dresses for my girls. Aside from publishing my own PDF sewing patterns, my designs have been included in several books, including the Pretty Little series by Lark Books and the Craft Hope book, also by Lark. I've also contributed to the Stitch publication by Interweave Press.
