About the project

This design is perfect for active women - whether you go shopping, to the gym or for a walk with your child, this spacious handbag is an excellent choice. Both stylish and practical, with faux leather touches. Choose classic colors to create a harmonious, casually-elegant look. On the other hand, bright and colorful fabrics won't let you go unnoticed.

The bag has one, large compartment with a zippered closure. The inside is finished with a lining. The lining features 2 large elastic pockets and one large zippered pocket.

The instruction describes an unconventional sewing technique, that allows to sew this bag without bias tape and without attaching the lining to the zipper at the end of sewing. With this technique you'll create a lovely bag with a neat finish.
