For a long time, I was looking for something suitable for stores, gift ideas on the Internet … And I came across a video lesson on creating a backpack for boys, which pushed me to the idea of sewing a handbag.

Patterns are simple enough and for work does not require great knowledge and experience in sewing.

We will need:

1. Thick fabric for the top (holding the shape) and fabric for the lining.

Since I had the remnants of gabardine and sewed sintepon, I decided to use them for the lining. For the top I used jeans.

2. Lace for finishing and braid for the strap.

We make patterns from a cardboard and we circle details on a fabric. Since my handbag will be made of three layers, I made the details for each (the front layer is jeans, the middle one is sewn sintepon, the lining of gabardine).

After everything is ready, we will begin to connect the details together. First, we swipe by hand, then we sew on the typewriter.

The lining is ready (with inner pocket).

Before connecting the rest, sew the sintepon to the jeans, his pins.

Stitch on the typewriter.

The cover of the bag is stitched from the wrong side (fabric face to face) on three sides to unscrew it.

It’s time to put everything together. We connect the lining with the first layer (face to face, lining with the wrong side outward):

We pin or pin the pins, on the one hand, do not flush to insert the bag cover and turn out the bag itself. If you need a loop for the belt, then we place them between the lining and the jeans, the loops down. After sewing on the machine and turning out the bag, we place the bag cover between two layers of fabric and draw it.
