This handbag sewing pattern is written using both imperial (inches) and metric (centimetres) measurements.

Acrylic templates for this pattern are available to purchase directly from the manufacturers, Kallosphere in the UK and ARC Expressions in the USA.

Included in the photos are bags made by our pattern testers. Please be aware that some of the testers have made small modifications to their bags. Instructions for these modifications are not included in the pattern. However, if you’d like to keep your handles out of the seam as shown on the bag with leather handles, you can simply cut your handles 3 1/2″ shorter than stated in the pattern and place them further up the panel so they’re away from the seam.

    This bag has a lovely shape to it and you say in your video it is a ‘propper’ handbag. Definitely one for a lunch out. I love it. The instructions are fabulous as always. I made it out of vinyl which was not recommended and ran out of webbing for my bag strap so I had to improvise with a littler featured coverup at the end. The result I achieved for a first go was fantastic. It is probably intermediate due to the amount of structure it needs but that said the instructions and guidance are great.
