A Very Cute Handbag {for my mom}

For mother's day, I have made a few things for my amazing mom.  Since we are more than 8000 miles apart, I wanted her to have something I create for her to show off to her friends lol

So I made a cute handbag that is very light weight and with lots of pockets for her stuff.

all the fabrics cut out for the handbag

embroidered this for the front pocket

sewing front card pocket to handbag front

back pocket

inside of the bag, big pocket is for mom's big wallet, smaller is for her phone, the smaller pocket was also embroidered 

front of the bag is sewn into two big pockets. 

sewing boxed corners

sewing zipper

recessed zipper done

added a button on one of the front pockets

after adding the handles....

  1. Hi Mandy! What a GREAT bag! Did you make up the pattern or use a published one. I love the details... hope mommie noticed! ;)

  2. Teri, i made it up. i was gonna follow a pattern, but my mom kept wanting this and that on the bag, so i just winged it! LOL Thank you for the compliment!

  3. oh mommy did notice, she was sooo proud. she said her friends all loved it and requested one for themselves lol and the best part is that it is very very very light, perfect for a mom

  4. A beautiful bag!!! I bet your Mom loved it.

    1. thank you!!! she did except she didnt like the handles coz she cant put it on her shoulder! so i actually took the handles out and added straps when she came to visit me last year.
