NOTE – SCROLL to the bottom for a complete VIDEO on how to make this bag.
Here’s a great pattern for a bag named the Noel Handbag. The designer who has made it has included four sizes for the price of one – S, M, L, and XL. So no matter your preference, whether you want a small handbag, a medium purse for every day or a really large bag to carry everything for the weekend, this pattern has you covered. What great value to get 4 different sizes in the same pattern.
The Noel Bag is a simple yet unique bag with two pockets on the gusset of the bag. The bag’s convenient pockets can easily store water bottles, beach towels, and more. It’s a wonderful bag for travelling and trips to the beach.
When each of the bags is finished they measure approximately:
Small: 18” wide by 11 1/2” high by 5” deep
Medium: 20” wide by 12 5/8” high by 5 1/2” deep
Large: 21 1/2” wide by 13 3/4” high by 6” deep
Extra large: 23 1/2” wide by 15” high by 6 1/2” deep.
Please note that the sample in the pictures was made with the smallest size.
