A competent beginner sewer will find the ‘Darling’ Dolly handbag a straightforward and simple to sew experience, as long as you can read pattern instructions, cut out from a template and sew competently.
Fable & Guild have collated a handy list of all their recommended suppliers where you can buy the perfect fabrics for creating these stunning bags.
When finished the Darling Dolly handbag will measure approximately 40cm (15.5”) high (including handles) or 29cm (11.5”) high (excluding handles) and 24cm (9.5”) wide by 19cm (7.5”) deep.
Using a quality 100% wool felt will give the Dolly good body and a luxurious life long feel (no fraying or selvedge’s to worry about also!).
You will need 3mm x 85cm x 65cm (recommend 3mm thick 100% wool felt).
