If you fancy sewing yourself a handbag that looks like you bought it in a nice store, then sometimes you really don’t need a fancy sewing pattern with all the bells and whistles that costs the earth! Store bought bags are often simpler in design, and just by using the right materials and some nice hardware, you can run up a very fancy looking bag in super-quick time.
This is a free sewing pattern for the Miss Maggie’s handbag, and it looks fabulous in a real leather, any of the faux leathers and vinyls, suede, and of course in a regular cotton or home decor weight fabric.
Here’s what it can look like if you choose to sew with a nice bright quilting cotton, as one of the pattern testers did. Check out the fabric from the new range by Tula Pink called Slow and Steady.
