Sew a Handbag...

My first usable big handbag!! I used the fabric that i bought in Leeds - from here, and made up my own pattern.
I added pleats - 3 on each side of each handle for a little detail, and a quite a large pocket on the inside. Its also got a calico covered piece of card on the inside so that the bottom keeps its shape. I'm mega pleased with this! Its actually very neat work. It was made to match a vintage dress i bought recently, but it doesn't really go...It will be used anyway methinks!


  1. Very pretty! I like the pleats, they're a nice detail!

  2. Just popping over from Swap-bot to say hi. This is a great purse!! Thanks so much! myaizar
