PDF Sewing Pattern - Purse with 4 interchangeable flap designs

Instant download

Description

It's so easy and fun to change purses when all you have to do is change the flap! "Mix It Up" with one base and as many flaps as you want! The base includes four inside pockets and a beaded closure that wraps around the button on the flap. Make as many flaps as you like - seasonal, holiday, just for your whim... or to use up some of that stash! They attach with Velcro onto the back of the base. I've included 4 different shapes. The finished dimensions are approximately 7.5" high by 7.5" wide by 2.5" deep.

Advanced Beginner Level (see below for list of supplies)

Included are 6 pages of instructions including a cutting matrix (everything is rectangular)and 5 photos for clarification PLUS 4 pattern pieces for additional flap shapes.

Supplies:
Base: 1/3 yard of outer fabric (w/out nap)
1/2 yard of lining fabric, 45" wide (w/out nap)
Flap: 9-1/4" wide X 9" high square of outer fabric
Lining - included in Base yardage or same as Flap
Strap: 3" wide x 26" long outer fabric (or desired length plus 1")

Notions: 1 yard of 22" wide iron-on heavy interfacing (Décor or Craft Bond)
Closure - Buttons or beads for flap and chain, 4 1/4" chain
Hook and Loop (Velcro) - 7" length (or several pieces to span that length). You can sew or glue this in place. If gluing, I used Aleene's "OK To Wash It" or similar.

Note: You may choose to decorate the flap with ribbons, rick-rack, buttons, etc. These supplies should be added to the above list.
