ASHFORD HANDBAG (new pdf pattern)

 

Hello friends, welcome!


I'm beyond excited to introduce my newest bag pattern to you today 😁😁.



What do you guys think? Isn't she quite something?


Finished size of this bag is 11 1/2'' tall x 13'' wide on bottom x 4'' deep which makes it a fabulously roomy everyday handbag. 



It features an easy to install, super handy zipper pocket in the lining as well as the main zipper closure to keep one's items safely inside.




And check out those zipper tabs! I think they add so much to an overall professional finish.



As you probably noticed, I'm quite a fan of adding leather handles to my bags. I do understand though that's it's not for everyone, so I included instructions on how to make your own fabric handles instead.


What do you say? Would you like to make an Ashford Handbag of your own?

FABRIC A (main exterior) – 1/4 yard

FABRIC B (contrasting exterior bottom) – 1/4 yard

FABRIC C (lining) – 3/4 yard
