Making the Butterfly Sling Purse

Not quite what she had in mind but I bought it and made this one for her to see.  She said she liked it, but really wanted one more like her old one, without the strap but with a handle.  So the Butterfly has flown to a new home, and I have gone back to the drawing board – literally.


Essential Wristlet Line Up

Here are my pattern pieces;

  1. the main pouch, which is larger and has curves instead of corners

  2. a small zipped pocket, but for the inside of one of the pouches not the outside

  3. a more basic version of the card slots (just one full depth, undivided slot and two card slots)

  4. the side panel for the card slots insert

  5. zipper tab

  6. no pattern piece, but I am cutting a strip to make a handle too

I used my 4 – 6mm Prym rivets as I needed longer ones than usual, and ended up putting 3 in each handle (playing it safe!) then one of my usual small ones in the centre of the bags to stop them gaping apart.

So what do you reckon, is it pretty good or pretty ugly? 

Will she like it, or should I make her something else?
