Maisie Bowler Handbag

(2 customer reviews)


A modern twist on a retro design, this large handbag is the perfect fit for any Bombshell Betty. The unique handles and domed shape pay homage to bowling bags of the past. This bag can be carried by the handles in the crook of the elbow or over the shoulder with a detachable strap. A zippered pocket inside keeps the small things safe and easy to find.

Printed paper pattern also includes a downloadable PDF pattern.

    I absolutely fell in love with the look and shape of the Maisie Bowler bag. I did find that the piping on the bag and the drop in lining quite a challenge, even as an experienced sewer. I frogged several bags before I got it right. There are some amazing videos to show you how to make this bag and I found them to be the most helpful. It is a beautiful bag.

    I’ve made several of these now, and they’ve all turned out adorable. Very clear, easy-to-follow pattern.
