Julie Ring Top Handbag
Julie is a modernized blast from the past that'll take you back to the disco days. This is a large handbag that features two pleated slip pockets, one inside and one on the exterior. The instructions walk you through how to make and sew your own round handbag handles, or you can use premade wooden, bamboo or even plastic handles. The pattern includes an optional removable shoulder strap.
