I am in need of a fun purse. I went to dinner with a friend recently and I admired her silver handbag – that’s when I decided I needed a purse like that. The other day when I went to the store, I stumbled across the ‘perfect looking’ purse – the problem? It’s designed for clothing. Consequently, it’s very flimsy so I’m intending on interfacing the heck out of it so that it retains it’s shape (I’m thinking a woven and Peltex combination). The HotPatterns Boxy Bowling Bag pattern that I intend on using calls for a lining like ripstop. Since I wanted the inside of the bag to be a lighter color, I just didn’t feel that ripstop would work (it’s very see-through) so I went with a heavier nylon sport. All the details for this project are listed below – I can’t wait to get started!
