The Roxanna Bag pattern, a small pretty purse with darts.

With this small pretty purse with darts, you choose whether to make it as a handbag or a shoulder bag with an adjustable strap. The unusual elegant shape and design is sure to be an eyecatcher.

The Roxanna Bag is a pretty little piece that is easy enough for beginners to make. It may be made into a shoulder bag with a long strap that’s worn on or across the shoulder, or for those of you who prefer bags with short handles, the strap may be adjusted so the bag becomes a regular handbag or hand-carried purse. The final decision on the length of the strap is up to you.

If you want to go wild with your own design skills then the curved flap on this bag is the ideal place to do that. You can add trim, ruffles, buttons, patchwork, embroidery, piping or more of your own ideas.

The bag is quite roomy, because of the darts in its design which give it volume. It is ideal for longer trips on which you require more than a few essential items, as it’ll save you the extra bother of carrying it around with your hands. Why not add this lovely curvaceous bag to your collection.

The Roxanna Bag is great for beginner sewers and when finished will measure approximately 13 ¾” wide by 7 ¼” high.
