Using an 8" kisslock purse frame, this sewing pattern makes a medium sized bag with a great vintage look.

If you like to work with vintage fabrics or if you have always wanted to learn how to work with these fabulous metal frames, I think you will love this pattern. Perfect for making your own shabby chic looking bag.

I carry the rose bag in the photo and have had people ask me about it. They are amazed when I tell them I made it because they assumed it was a vintage find.

I love the capacity of this bag. I also love the easy access of the wide frame opening.

Finished dimensions of bag:
Frame is 8" wide (20.3cm) by about 3" tall (7cm)
Bag height is 8.5" up to edge of frame (21.5cm)
Bottom width of bag is a substantial 12" (30.5cm)
Depth measured at bottom of bag is 4.5" (11.5)
Your strap drop will depend on the length of chain you use. The bag is pictured with a 30" ball chain, doubled to a 15" chain for a 7" drop. BitsandPurses sells a better quality of chain that I use now, but it is not in the photos. (see link below.)

I think you will be proud of your neatly top-stitched, firm bottom, and the styling and performance of your bag.
