Purse Makeover

This is my old purse:
 This is my new purse:

The pattern is by Jen Giddens.  It is super easy (took about an hour to make) and you don't need any specialized sewing skills to make it.  However the pattern does not include any directions for cutting the purse handle (no measurements of any kind) so you do have to come up with that on your own.  I also am not super fond of her instruction style but overall it was worth the $9.00 I paid for the pattern and I plan to use it over again. 
 It makes a cute small under your arm purse that is perfect for holding all your (new and improved) essentials.

  1. SO very cute!! I've been looking for a purse pattern. Thank you for sharing!!

  2. Love your version of my bag -- great fabrics! I'm sorry that the instructions gave you some trouble! I'll take your feedback into consideration as I'm writing new patterns. Also, I'll try to make the strap measurement easier to find -- it's written on the same page as the pattern pieces :)

    Great blog, too!
