Making Vintage Bags - Emma Brennan

Rose / Patricia Bag
Rose = with rose embellishment
Patricia = with bow embellishment

Since mine has no embellishment it needs a new name
Crescent shape bag in style of 1940's bags.

Pattern and directions are very clear. The patterns need photocopying and enlarging to 165%.

Used fusbile volume fleece, mystery fabric which has been in stash 6 years and other bits from stash.

The bag has a zip closure - the handle and loop are just to carry the bag.
This pattern makes a lovely evening bag and I shall be trying more from this book.

I think the Rose embellishment would be too much on this busy fabric but I shall try it on a plainer bag. I think the Rose really makes the bag far more fun so I shall be getting some ribbon.

See my Blog for more pics.
