Handbag on estelles footseps

i looked around at burda patterns to make a nice handbag for a friend of mines birthday. fashion1 has given us a very very nice and well explained pattern for a bag she called “estelle”. i did it, using a few pits of trimming i had left and some of the material i allready used to do my balcony cushions.

it was a very nice and easy job, i finished in only a little over 2 hours. i hope my friend will like her new handbag

Material Notes

strong linnen in light blue for the outside, green silk for the lining, vintage trimmings for the decoration




Garment Type
Cotton, Linen, Silk

    I agree…fabric choice was inspired! But what is stunning as well is the interior! It is finished with such a great contrasting fabric. All of the details as well as the style work so well!
