This smart looking purse is easy to make and very functional. The inside is lined, exposed inside seams are trimmed and zigzagged for a clean finish. The purse features a back pocket. Use any standard zipper and find out how easy it is to put a zipper in using Lazy Girl's trademark easy zipper technique. This pattern is a 'Fat Quarter Cutie' and can be made from fat quarter cuts of fabric.
Mary and Jennifer are experienced bag makers and will share many of their tips for making successful bags.
Fabric recommendations: The entire bag is made from just two fabrics. Choose two coordinating fat quarters and find some fantastic buttons and ribbons to decorate the front of the purse.
Keeping in the Lazy Girl tradition, this project is quick and easy and offers a place to embellish and personalize.
