Description

This bag was made from the Burdastyle Sewing Handbook pattern, with the addition of a magnetic snap closure.

I had been eyeing this fabric for a long time, and not sure what I could possibly make from it. When my purse finally gave out, I knew I had to try this.

The bag is about seven times the size of the one I’m accustomed to carrying. I may try reducing the pattern size and see what that yields. I will definitely have to create an organizer of some kind to put inside this!

Material Notes

Cotton print, duck cloth, mystery fabric lining
