I'm back with yet another test bag to show you. Actually it's a pouch but the pattern is for a purse and a pouch. This is the Fairport Purse & Pouch which is the design of Sara Curtis from Radiant Home Studio. I wanted to test the purse but didn't have the hardware needed so opted for this cute pouch and I wasn't disappointed.
I used an upholstery fabric for the yolk and a home decor for the bottom half. I can't wait to get some free time and make it in pretty floral quilting cottons.
The Fairport Purse & Pouch pattern has 2 sizes, 3 closure choices and 2 strap choices. The perfect pattern for a beginner to advanced level. If you're not too confident about adding a zipper closure then you have a magnetic button option or a flap option.
This small pouch measures 8 1/2" W x 7" H and the purse 11 1/2" W x 9" H
The larger purse can also be used as a clutch with instructions for adding a wrist strap or you can add a shoulder strap. So many choices you'll end up wanting to make one of each.
The back of the pouch is exactly the same as the front.
The inside is roomy and uncluttered. No pockets inside.
I love the corners on the pouch and thought they might be a bit fiddly to do but were really easy. Sara's pattern was clearly written with photos and digital photos that are easy to follow.
Here is a photo of Sara's purse and pouch so you can see what the bag looks like and also another version of the clutch. Aren't they just gorgeous.
If you'd like to make one you can buy the pattern HERE. In fact with this pattern you could make a bunch of them all different.
Thanks for stopping by
