Are you still lacking in confidence when it comes to sewing some style of bags? There can be a pretty steep learning curve when it comes to all the bells and whistles such as zippers, interfacing, hardware, piping etc. And naturally, some bags have more of these than others or are fully-featured, which takes a bit more time and patience when it comes to sewing in order to get the very best results.
But if you are feeling ready to take your bag sewing to the next level, try out some intermediate level patterns and different styles of bags, then having a video to watch is the best way forward. Now you can follow along step by step and carry out the same steps to make sure you get great results with those sewing patterns on the very first try.
We recommend Swoon sewing patterns because they are very well written and tested, and there is a very supportive Facebook group to help you out if you get stuck. Today, we are looking at the fun Betty Bowler purse.
Betty Bowler – A vintage-inspired carry-all, roomy enough to fit anything you need for a day trip. This bag is about 17” wide and features four exterior slip pockets, a zippered pocket inside, and piping for a professionally-made look.
