This 1930s inspired bag is made in a fire engine red corduroy with a heavy cream satin lining. It closes with a magnetic clasp. I embellished the front with some washers from the hardware store instead of bows or buttons – a nod to the current trend for studded bags, jackets etc.
I’ve also made this bag in silk, velvet, brocade and tweed and works very well as an evening bag.
The pattern is from Emma Brennan’s book, Making Vintage Bags.
