Never sewn a bag before or just looking for a quick and easy project? The use of metal handles in this bag means there is no need for fiddly zippers or closures, but the bag still looks super cute and just like something you could have bought in a nice store. If you don't like the handles, you can achieve the same look simply by following the cut out from the pattern piece and binding those edges with a bias binding tape instead. This bag pattern is perfect for adding your own touches. Watch out in the future for some variations on this bag to come.
