Ella simple handbag pattern

My favorite purse sewing pattern. Easy, cute, handy and no funky zips or closures to sew. Everyone loves these bags, and they sell really well. Purse or handbag sewing pattern.

This cute handbag has 2 deep shaped pockets on the outside, and more inside that you can customize to hold all your essentials. For those of you who aren’t yet comfortable with zippers, you’ll be pleased to know that there are none to sew in this bag, and no fancy hardware needed. There is an optional snap closure if you want to add it.

Ella is sweet but sophisticated and just plain fun to construct!

Finished size is 15″ wide at top x 10″ tall x 5″ deep.
