My darling daughter Julie, spied the unopened pattern several weeks ago and knew she would like it for several reasons.
Her biggest reason: Large exterior pockets which could hold a child's sippy cup!
(see picture below)
Julie has all but given up on me giving her this tote bag!
For a while I was getting phone calls and Facebook messages asking if I had her purse finished. I'd reply, "almost done".
Three days later I'd reply "it is ready, but I want to show it to someone" and finally " I need to carry it a few times to see if it is comfortable".
A few days ago, she phoned to ask if I'd mind sending her a PICTURE of it ......which I did.
I can't hold on to it much longer before she'll consider the belated Birthday Gift a hand-me-down! Therefore, I'll be removing my keys & wallet any day now!
My hat goes off to the Designer! It is an easy, yet interesting purse to sew. The pocket pattern piece(say that fast 3 times) goes together with the exterior & lining panels in a unique method.
It requires only basic sewing skills. If you would like to purchase the pattern click here.
If you have any questions about the pattern feel free to contact me.
Julie gets matching Glam Bag too!
Fabric used for this purse is Fortune - chocolate and Cathedral - zinnia by Anna Maria Horner
