A beautifully elegant short handle handbag but with a shoulder strap option!

This bag can be made using all types of fabric and gives you the opportunity to showcase a contrast fabric for the front exterior "wave" flap pocket. It works particularly well with a vinyl / faux leather exterior.

The pattern contains easy to follow instructions with full colour images to help you on your way.

There are 2 exterior pockets, 1 at the front which is concealed by a flap and the other is my unique "Honey method" slip pocket at the back (I have included a short tutorial on how to assemble this pocket). 2 generous size internal compartments  (1 with a zip pocket) which are divided by a zip pocket. 

This bag will take you anywhere, from lunch with friends, to a fancy night out on the town! It is also ideal for carrying all of your daily essentials and will hold a small laptop / tablet. 

Finished size - 14w x 10h x 4"d  (35.5 x 25.5 x 10cm)

This bag is also wonderful when made at 85% of the pattern size. I have included the relevant zip size adjustments in order to make it at this size.
