Mabel Vintage Handbag
This free sewing pattern was designed and written for Pellon. Mabel is an adorable little handbag inspired by vintage box purses of the 40’s. This bag is roomy enough to carry your everyday essentials while still looking sleek and retro-stylish. It’s also the perfect size for a lunch bag with Pellon® Insul-fleece™ basted or quilted to the lining pieces, or as a cosmetics bag by using laminated or nylon fabric as the lining.
