The Konin Bowler Purse sewing pattern comes together really quickly. The designer rated it as intermediate as it involves sewing curves, but there’s no reason an ambitious beginner can’t give it a try!

It’s firm and structured with a built-in wallet inside and a stretchy mesh pocket which is really handy for holding your phone. The bag is finished with binding on the inside. Binding is a great way to give a bag structure, it creates a sort of “skeleton” inside the bag which helps it keep its shape.

Finished size:
7″ high by 9 1/2″ wide by 4″ deep

Skill level:
Intermediate.

You can sell bags made from this design on a home-based production scale.
