This simple pattern for a handbag brings out opulent materials at their best! The bag “Ellie” can be worn crossbody or as a clutchbag. “Ellie” is very simple and quick to sew.
With the pattern download you’ll not only get a written instruction, but a whole sewing video tutorial! On my YouTube channel Koba.Siani I show you step-by-step how the lovely “Ellie” is made. You can also have a look on the video in advance to decide whether this project is suitable for you. In my channel I’ll also release free tutorials and patterns!
Link to the video tutorial:
“Ellie” is about 28 cm x 19 cm, made with a zipper and has an inside zip pocket and card holders.
sewing level: advanced beginners. Difficult detail: the zipper, but as I told you before, I accompany you with a video, together we can make it!

Regarding the pattern: As up to now I’m not yet using a computer to make my patterns, I’m doing them by hand. So they look a bit different but they are very clearly arranged. All sizes are in different colours and the pattern can be printed out on A4 or US letter size paper.
