Beau Pair Purses (in 2 sizes) Pattern Booklet

69 items left

With two purses that look as cute as these I'm hoping they encourage you to overcome your fear of zips.  Zips are an inexpensive and secure bag closure and when used with a good colour combination they can be an eye-catching addition to any project, so it would be a shame to avoid them.  In this pattern I have taken squillions of instruction pics and I have done my best to give as much detail as possible, hopefully making your zip phobia a thing of the past. The larger pattern is a great size as a clutch or a cosmetics purse.  Additionally I have also made a pattern for this darling dinky-doo coin purse.

Features at a glance:
* Zips keep things secure, once the zip is shut it stays shut.
* Play with colour combos to mix and match your outfits and get admiring glances
* 2 perfect sizes - the larger clutch easily stores all the party/quick trip essentials, use the coin purse to store your money, tickets and lip-balm.
* Easy construction, make the clutch in an evening (or two).
* Versatile, wear the clutch as a wristlet or remove the strap to hand hold or to use as a cosmetic pouch.

* Clutch W9 4/8” x H5 1/2” (23.5 x 14cm)
