Pattern Details

This is one of the most complimented bags I carry. People are always asking me where I found it and their jaws drop open when I tell them that I made it. If you need something romantic and sweet, but you would like it to hold a fair amount of contents, this is your bag. Gluing the frame in is a little intimidating for people (and for me too) so I found a foolproof way of doing it, and I think you will love it! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Everything is explained and illustrated, but some parts are a little tricky to do. I think you can do it! SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Frame is 8" wide (20.3cm) Bag is 8.5" tall (21.5cm) 12" wide at bottom 4.5" deep at bottom

Recommended with this pattern

  • 8" kisslock frame
  • 1/2 yard fabric (you may need more if you are fussy cutting to
  • 1/2 yard lining fabric

Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started at my mother's feet, fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for the coming school year. I was known as a creative dresser. I wrote my first sewing pattern in 2006 as part of applying for a patent. Now I have thousands of satisfied sewing pattern customers and am very happy to be part of the online sewing community. See books that feature my work and follow my various adventures on my blog.
