Purse Sewing Project



To go with my handbag accessories, I decided to make a purse. In order to fit all of my accessories, I needed a larger purse for daily use. I haven’t used a pattern since middle school but as hard as I thought it would be, it wasn’t difficult at all! I used a See & Sew pattern and modified only a couple of details. I felt it necessary to add an additional inside pocket for pens and coin purse (as seen below).

The entire project took me roughly 8 hours to do (which included quilting the main fabric). I was mostly happy with how it turned out although when the pockets are full, the lining material is pulled down, collapsing in on the open purse space. That is not too large of a problem, however if I had designed it, that wouldn’t happen.

It was nice to be able to learn a few new tricks (like how to use a zipper foot) and use new tools (pattern haha) in sewing!
