Swoon patterns knocks it out the park again (in our opinion) with the Annette Purse sewing pattern. As a bonus with this pattern, there are two different sizes included in the pattern.

Perfect for all occasions, this Satchel Handbag (the small size) and Commuter Tote (the large size) are as stylish as they are practical.

With a sleek and classic look, this bag features handles, a removable shoulder strap, two exterior pockets and one zippered pocket. We simply adore the look, the shape, the curves – Annette is a stunner!

Instructions are included for vinyl and woven fabrics, as well as pattern pieces for two bag sizes.  Make this gorgeous bag in a smaller handbag size, or the larger commuter tote – two patterns in one!

Sizing/Finished measurements:-

  • Satchel Handbag = 13″ wide by 9″ tall by 5″ deep.
  • Commuter Tote = 18″ wide by 12″ tall by 7″ deep.

Annette is a stunning bag to sew, but if you need a little help with some of the trickier bits or want to make a few of your own customizations and additions such as adding piping, then here’s a great full length step by step sewing video from Lauren to help you out.
