Here’s a FREE pdf sewing pattern inspired by vintage box purses from the 1940’s.
Mabel is an adorable little handbag. She is roomy enough to carry your everyday essentials while still looking sleek and retro-stylish. It’s also the perfect size for a lunch bag with fusible fleece basted or quilted to the lining pieces. Or Mabel can be used as a cosmetics bag by using laminated or nylon fabric as the lining.
In order to complete Mable as a sewer, you should already be somewhat familiar with sewing patterns and common sewing terms. When you finish making your Mabel Vintage Handbag she will be approximately 9″ wide by 6″ tall by 3.5″ deep.
What you will need to make the Mabel Vintage Handbag
1/2 yd of 44″ wide quilting cotton fabric for the exterior
1/2 yard of 44″ wide quilting cotton fabric for the lining
