Swoon does it again with the Maisie Bowler Handbag! Another great bag sewing pattern from one of our favorite designers.
A modern twist on a retro design, this large handbag is the perfect fit for any Bombshell Betty. The unique handles and domed shape pay homage to bowling bags of the past. This bag can be carried by the handles in the crook of the elbow or over the shoulder with a detachable strap. A zippered pocket inside keeps the small things safe and easy to find.
As always you can’t go wrong with the quality of Swoon patterns and the detailed instructions, along with the very supportive Facebook group should you run into any questions.
