After putting together my first PDF pattern for the Mirabelle Messegner Bag, I didn't think I'd have it in me to do another pattern. Then one night, I went out with some girlfriends and realized all my purses are big, kid snack toting, former diaper bags. With both kids out of diapers, it was time for a cute little, going out bag.
So I came up with this pattern, and made a few. Well, 5 to be exact. The thing is, the pattern requires so little fabric and hadware that making 5 is pretty easy. You could easily make one for every outfit!
The size is big enough to fit your wallet, keys, phone, even some tissues, yet small enough to tuck under your arm or carry on your wrist. The side strap attaches at the top so you can just tuck it into the purse if you don't want to use it.
There are so many possibilities for this bag. I show you how to add some pretty piping along the flap.
You can keep is simple with a beautiful print.
You can add a chunky button to the flap.
Want to make your own? You can buy it here, from my shop,
Or if you'd rather buy it through etsy, they now offer an instant download feature as well. Get the pattern HERE.
Add your finished bags to my Flickr group. I love seeing what you come up with!
