We had several request to add Aunties Two Patterns, which is very unique because several of these handbag patterns are made using clothesline covered in fabric strips! This enables you to use combinations of colors (Bali Pops are recommended) for a very interesting and individual effect.

Do you know what a Bali Pop is? This is package of 40 fabric strips each measuring 2 1/2" x 44" of Batik fabric.


We have just added another free purse pattern to our free bag pattern list - The Juliet Getaway Bag pattern made using fabric from the Juliet Collection by Windham.

The new Bon Vivant Bag Pattern by Ellen Medlock uses her new Damask fabric and is also easy to make!
