This is verson 2.0 of my winter purse free sewing pattern! Made from sweatshirt fabric and cotton, this is a fun second version of my original winter purse pattern. I’ll give you a link to the free pattern and tutorial at the bottom of this post. First I want to show off my NEW bag!
I sewed this up live on my facebook sewing show. Have you been tuning in? Anyway, I was able to sew this in about an hour, while talking and answering questions… so it is a really quick sew. I wanted to try this with sweatshirt fleece. It’s a nice thick fabric, so I thought it would give the bag a bit of structure, and I really think it turned out well. The pleate isn’t as defined as the orginal, but it’s still super cute.
This is a one zipper version. My original had 2 zipper pockets on the front. I only had one zipper I wanted to use with this fabric though, so this is a modified version from the original. It’s a perfect pocket for my phone though.
I love the lace trim. It gives a soft touch to the sweatshirt fabric.
I used a magnet clasp for a closure. It’s just enough to keep my things safe.
I love that it has three difference compartments. The flowers are a bit busy for finding small items, but I still love the fabric.
Cute right? It blends in a bit with the outfit I was wearing last week, but I’ve been carrying this purse for a few weeks now nad it’s been great for my daily needs.
