The Hermes Bag Making Kit - BLANK KIT

1 item left

Ker-pow!  With her classic shape she may be stylishly subtle, but she is no less an attention grabber.  As you can see this bag shape is based on the 'hard working, super practical messenger bag', but I wanted to design a sophisticated, more nippier, but every bit as practical version.  She's beautifully padded and with great sized body and 2 roomy pockets, it's easy to organise everything. The faux leather version looks so professional.  Make her and you will love her, she's sure to become a much-used favourite. The pattern is written for making a faux leather bag, but instructions are provided for substituting for fabric if desired.
