Happy Shopper

A Favourite with Family & Friends

This is an easy make and can be made with or without piping and wadding to suit your own taste. It is a handy size open top shoulder bag with an external pocket and pockets inside, including one with a zip to keep your purse and phone safe.


This useful shoulder bag can be made from any firm fabric with an even weave, we have used faux leather and cotton. Because the contrasting print can be cut from a fat quarter you can splurge on a gorgeous designer fabric. Or maybe you have some scraps left over from another project.
