The Dandelion Double Zip Handbag - PDF Sewing Pattern
The Dandelion Double Zip Handbag is a smaller sized bag with 2 main zippered compartments and one large open compartment in the middle that closes with a magnetic snap. It has 2 shorter straps and comes with instructions for an optional cross body strap.
