Here’s another great FREE pattern and tutorial. This Indie style purse has a pleated body, a magnetic snap closure, a natural linen band with hand stitching details, a shaped top, and two straps to be worn over your shoulder.
Despite all the lovely details, this bag is much easier to sew than you might think. You only need one small pattern piece, just for the shaped part at the top of the bag. The rest of the pieces are all rectangles and the pleating is what gives the bag it’s shaping.
The approximate finished dimensions are 9 1/2″ by 9 1/2″ by 3″ (straps not included).
