I saw a purse like this on a website. I knew what the finished dimensions of the purse were…so I worked my way back from that…and guesstimated what the measurements for all the pieces should be. No one is more surprised than I that it actually came out right!!! hahaha Now my friend wants me to make her one.
I used faux leather with a piece of tapestry material running down the center of the outside of the bag. I used a strip of the same tapestry material for the middle of the flap, matching the design to the piece on the body of the bag. I satin stitched around the tapestry material on the flap since any other embellishment (like a button) was just too much. I used both the faux leather and a lighter weight cotton canvas material to line the interior of the bag. I used the faux leather at the top so it would match the outer body of the bag and used the yellow for deep inside the bag. There are 6 pockets on the inside of the bag. I will definitely use this pattern again, however I wouldn’t use the faux leather. The way you have to construct the bag, it just makes it too hard to sew through….broke a few needles for sure. But was what I had on hand…..and since I wasn’t using a true pattern….figured I had nothing to lose. I will only use cotton material with the lightweight polyester craft fleece next time.
