White Lake, Mich...






new pattern, I absolutely love it, but i think its too big for me to carry, it kinda over powers me. I will be redrafting this pattern a bit smaller. I plan on making at least 3 in this shape and size for an up coming street fair.

Material Notes

canvas, burlap, printed cottons, and rick rac!


Fall, Winter
Garment Type

    Very creative details! Love the bag. Have been looking for something similar to make. Would you mind sharing the pattern number?

      Thank you. I drafted the pattern off a bag I bought at the Salvation Army…sorry. But buying the used bag was only $3 (cheaper than most patterns) and unlike a pattern it came with a bit of fabric and 2 zippers.

    this is such a great bag!!! how did you do the straps? Are they just strips of fabric? It looks like an awesome challenge- great fabrics!!

      Thank you, the handle is actually just a tube (made up of 7 vertical strips) about 8″×12″, all bunched up in fabric strips that i folded like bias tape then sewed shut. I swear i spent at least an hour trying every different way i could think of to wrap the strips, i’m really happy with how it turned out , its a bit different then all my other bags.

    I love this! I’m in a “retro” themed sewing challenge. Let me know if you’d be interested. The “look” of this purse would fit right in!
