I really love this little handbag from Amy and her book "Bend The Rules Sewing". This has been the go to project for the last minute gift , several times , which I really like to make handmade whenever possible. It really is an easy sew, truly, I promise. I did make a couple of changes this time , I made it larger and I added a magnetic closure. I was thinking of a zipper and I just might do that to the next one. Also, I picked up a light blue velvet ribbon , but in the end went with the richer burgundy color, again. The fabric is from Amy Butler, gorgeous stuff I tell you.
Well, Lydia has claimed the purse! So in order to try and get it from her grasp I have negotiated a trade.
This messenger bag is adorable, is it not? I think it will do the trick. Especially in this gorgeous fabric. You can purchase a pattern of this bag from this etsy shop, if your interested. The directions are clear and it is an easy sew even for a beginner. I am not receiving any compensation for the recommendations, just sharing;-)
