new alice purse



I made a new Alice Purse. And this one is for me, yay!


I went back and forth a bit on which fabric to use, of course. In the end I decided to combine this beautiful Foliage in Black by Sarah Watson for Cloud 9 with black wool for the exterior, and I chose another Cloud 9 fabric I had in my stash for the lining.


This was the first time I worked with wool. It wasn't that different from working with cotton, but I did have to remember to adjust temperature of the iron as too much heat can ruin wool.


And, since I was going for chic and classy with my purse, I used leather handles instead of fabric ones and rivets instead of stitching to attach my adjustable strap. Both of these upgrades actually made the whole process quicker and I absolutely love the final look.


This bag finishes at 11” wide x 10” tall x 3 ½” deep and is just a perfect size for my everyday needs as I no longer have to tote around a ginormous bag as my kids are older now (insert a very, very happy face here). Plus, I really love all the zipper pockets.

You can purchase a pattern for this purse by clicking here if you'd like to make an Alice Purse of your own.

Happy sewing, friends. Svetlana
