Say Hello to Jade. This sewing pattern guides you through the sewing of a classic styled shoulder purse with some nice details. We especially love the way that two different fabrics are combined in the strap. It looks so smart, but at the same time it’s really practical, with the vinyl on the inside helping to keep the strap clean.
The interior sits neatly within the bag “no saggy lining”.
A zipper pocket.
A slip pocket.
A pleated pocket.
This fast, easy to sew bag pattern can be made with cotton, denim, decorator fabrics, cork or faux leather.
You can sew the entire body in a single fabric (like the tweed example) or split it to have two different fabrics, perhaps a vinyl on the bottom and then a pretty printed cotton or decorator fabric for the upper section. Both ways look good.
Skill level: Jade can be completed by a confident beginner to intermediate sewer.
Sizing info: She will measure approximately 12″ wide by 10 1⁄2″ high by 4 1⁄2″ deep.
