Cute Little Handbag

A few weeks ago, I won this adorable fabric in a fat quarter piece from the Kelani blog - yay for me! It's called 'Retro Bambi in Red on Peach'.

And on Friday night, I decided to make a little handbag from it, using a Simplicity pattern # 4650. By Saturday night it was finished, and it didn't turn out too bad at all :-P

Lined in an off-white and black damask-y flower print..

Finished with a magnetic snap clip...

and some top-stitching..

I had fun making it, and have another one or two planned in my head. Next project though : Amy Butler's Zinnia Cushion in the 24" design - should be a challenge and a half!


  1. Noice, I love it. I have a sewing machine on layby, you inspire me to get some things done when I get my new machine!

  2. wow Kelly, well done! supercute, i love it!

  3. I love it Kelly. You are too clever. The fabric is gorgeous as well.

  4. It's gorgeous babe, I love it...and am secretly coveting it =O)

    Any chance you've got enough material to make another?!! ...could make a great anniversary present...hint, hint!! hehe! couldn't help myself, sorry =O)


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments - they really warm my heart. So thank you!
