Stitch up a zip top wristlet handbag with this PDF SEWING PATTERN.
This bag has a pleated exterior, one roomy interior pocket, and a knotted wristlet strap that doesn't require any hardware.
The interior pocket is set into the lining fabric and has a curved opening to make it easier to slide your hand inside. The pocket is 4.5" (12cm) deep, 9" (23cm) wide, and has a 4" (10cm) wide opening. So it's not super deep, but is very wide and spans most of the width of the bag interior.
The bag can be used for a handbag or cosmetics bag.
The pattern document is 13-pages: 8-pages text and color photo instructions + 5-pages of pattern pieces. Includes all pattern pieces for the main bag and cutting instructions give cutting dimensions for three straight edge pieces.
