i made view c on this pattern which was easy enough to make, but the lining is much shorter than the bag, so in other words, the inside is only as deep as about 1/2 the bag. the instructions say this is the way the designer wanted it. the second time i made it, i went ahead and cut the lining deeper and i liked it better. very simple to sew, not wide but deep. made it in black toile first and red hat fabric second.

Wow, there's a lot of unusual materials in your bag! Is the pleather difficult to sew? You attended to many details on this purse, including the facing! I'm not sure how fusible fleece would work with pleather, but it worked nicely for me on my first bag (made of a mystery home dec fabric).

Looks like fashionable,bright bags being sold in department stores everywhere. I have made many purses over the years prior to this new craze and the best "interfacing" to use is fusible fleece. With pleather you may have to apply the fleece to the lining fabric instead of pleahter because of the heat. I done with other fabrics as well and it works ok with the lining fabric, provided that is cotton or something a little sturday. You could even sew in the fleece. This just gives bags more weight and neccesary stiffness.

The pattern url: (I usually book-mark the page, and then go to it in a new window. If you use Opera, you can turn the address window back on.)

PamJr, sorry about the link. I used to know how to do it directly, but Simplicity has changed its website and I can't figure out how to link to the pattern. The best I can do is the home page and you'll have to input the pattern number from there.
