The Lotus Handbag - PDF Sewing Pattern
The Lotus Handbag is a very unique, medium-sized bag with 2 large exterior side pockets with magnetic snap closures and one large middle zippered compartment. You can use a combination of home decor, vinyl/faux leather, quilt weight cotton as you wish! It has 2 shorter double straps and is meant to carried on one arm. If you prefer a shoulder bag, simply lengthen the straps! Inside the bag, there are 2 slip pockets and 1 zippered pocket.
I believe anyone can tackle this pattern with the right amount of attention to detail, patience and willingness to learn new techniques however it is best suited for intermediate to advanced sewers.
