My Pretty Things Purse Sewing Tutorial

My Pretty Things Purse

Hey y’all! I am calling this week’s project “My Pretty Things Purse” as the clear vinyl flap allows you to see inside the bag without opening it up. 

For this project I suggest using a home decor weight material or cotton with the thickest interfacing you can sew comfortably. To begin, you will need to precut the following pattern pieces:

(4) 9” x 7” Body Panels

(4) 3” x 7” Side Panels

(2) 3” x 9” Base Panels

(1) 5” x 17” Handle

(1) 3” x 9” Flap Trim

(2) 8” x 6” Vinyl Flaps

In addition to one closure of your liking. I used a magnetic snap and a press lock for my bags; but, you could also use a traditional snap, hook and loop tape or a button. You may also even consider installing bag feet on the base to add that extra special touch. 

This project is constructed using my T-Method. If you are not familiar please review this awesome tutorial by Jo Blackwell:
