Chatelaine Purse sewing pattern (with video)
This is the designer’s modern version of the Chatelaine Purse which ladies carried in Victorian days. They were designed to carry small handy items. The designer has added a card slot so you can carry a card or two with you. It’s large enough to carry a travel-sized packet of tissues for example. Adding a swivel clip allows you to clip the purse to your belt, to your main purse, or to your keys.
Sizing info (approximately):
6″ wide by 4.5″ high.
