Sweet Little Loulouthi Bag
I stumbled across this bag pattern from Craft Apple a while ago and had been wanting to whip one up. Yesterday was the day! I love this Loulouthi fabric from Anna Maria Horner and love how it looks on this little bag.
I chose where to cut so I could get the front the way I wanted it, but the back (above) turned out OK too.
The lining includes a pocket. I have to have a pocket in a purse. Don't you?
The handles are bit long for my taste. I think I would rather have them either a bit shorter and carry the purse on my forearm, or have one strap attached on the sides instead of the front/back so I can carry it over my shoulder. I may add a velcro closure, too.
But all in all I love this little bag! All you need are two fat quarters (my favorite cut of fabric), some fusible interfacing and a small piece of stabilizer for the bottom of the bag.
I usually carry a larger bag, but I am excited to use this one. Do you have a bag you made that you love?
