New wool handbag

I like to make bags, but I hardly ever do. Why? No answer, just one of many contradictions we all have in us.

So, there is a tutorial on a blog I like to visit for a Vintage Handbag this link will take you direct to the tutorial. She also points you to a great tutorial for putting in a zipper Easy peasy!

Here’s mine – and of course, I couldn’t follow the directions *exactly*… I didn’t put interfacing in the body of the bag like she recommended, but I should have put it in the top band. Next time.


I did put a pocket in and since the wool and the lining were so sedate, I had some fun with the pocket.

    Great lining fabric, and you’re right, the pocket spices up the whole bag. Love it!
