Seen on Lynne's Blog

This is CUTE! I am not much for making non-garments but I think I could make this...with a pattern

Suggestions?

This is a PDF downloadable pattern but it looks slightly similar., though a but smaller. You'd have to ad the hardware but that doesn't seem like it would be too complicated. ( NAYY with the Etsy seller)

Link to Etsy Shop

I'd put a pic but I can't figure out how, lol.

:-) It is a similar "envelope" style. Thank for the link too! I am like, the world's WORST "Googler"! I can never find what I'm looking for

I would get three pieces of paper -- either three, 8.5x11 -- to make your pattern. One is the front. One is the back. One you'll need to cut in half and draft a simple curve. You could tape all these together, stacked so:

3
2
1

Where the paper stops should be your fold line.

Get two pieces of fabric and some interfacing. If you want pockets, add those to the lining piece before you assemble them.

What ever method you wish to use for assembly ... go for it.

Add the hardware -- looks to be a belt-type closure. Thrift something or look for the hardware online.

I should think it would be easily replicated, depending on whether or not you want it to be more than a clutch/portfolio type purse. You might need side gores for depth. Many of my mother's clutches had little accordion-style pleats from the lining that helped the purse open and do so without spilling all the contents.

What do you think?

I think you are brilliant!

Yes! It's like doing DIY envelopes (which I've done) on a larger scale. It'd totally be just a cute bag for nights out so no real depth necessary.

I'm going to attempt this in the near future!

That is really sharp! Do you think they used a good canvas type fabric with interfacing? I honestly thought it was made from a printed leather. I had this tute saved so I can make these little envelopes for my DDs to put on their school books, but the instructions and pics are along the idea of what you want. Let us know when you start the project!

I have NO clue! I am not super fabric savvy yet.

ooh, I wonder if a home-dec weight fabric would be better?

I found this DIY tute:

you could just round out the flap.
