These 2 purses are my latest sewing projects. I thought Sabrina needed a purse that she could take to Africa, one that could hold her valuables like passport and lipstick.;) and it would have one long strap so she could cross it on one shoulder, and keep it close.
But I had never used this pattern, so i made a test purse with this Moda fabric.
It has also been about 15 years since i had put a zipper in, and this purse has TWO. The inside pocket fabric matches the strap.

This is the fabric Sabrina picked out. It is Amy Butler fabric, and I ordered it online from, their shipping was superfast, i also ordered some fabric to do lisa a diaper bag, can't wait to see it finished.
One of the differences that this purse has that the Moda purse doesn't have is that the outside pocket has a magnet closure. The inside pocket is just a little deeper.


  1. These are lovely!! I'll bet Sabrina is happily toting her awesome bag in Africa as I type!!

  2. probably just blew some african minds with your purses awesomeness
