This detailed PDF Pattern with full color photographs will guide you step by step through the process of sewing your own "Bella" Paillette purse! This is a great project for the average craftty sewist. Not recommended as a first sewing project, but not difficult. Sewers with some experience will be able to sew this fun purse.

****this is a listing for a PDF Sewing Pattern, completed purse is NOT included****

Don't let the zipper scare you away, the installation is SUPER easy with professional results.

My sample is made with lightweight denim in dark blue. This pattern will work with any light to midweight fabric that will fray. Multiple colors or prints for the paillettes (circles) would be fun too. The bag is also cute in faux leather/suede. The stitching is a little more challenging than denim, but the pattern includes tips and minor changes you use to make the leather look bag.

Finished size is 14"w x 13"h x 4" deep at the bottom, a medium sized bag.

This detailed pattern will take you step-by-step through the construction of the purse. Every step is described and a full color photograph is provided to illustrate the step. No assuptions of skill are made (other than operating your sewing machine!) and each step is brief and logically stated in large print.
