|The pattern has 2 short handbag straps, I added on the cross body strap|
This was only my second purse with large amounts of vinyl, and it fought me a little. I wasn't able to sew all the way up the gussets, and after breaking 9 needles, I accepted that and worked with what I could do!
|Inside is a zippered pocket on one side|
Changes:Instead of the twist lock the purse calls for, I used a tongue lock. I did have to cut the top tab down by almost 2", but since I used vinyl, I just chopped it off to the right length when I finally got to that part and redid the top stitching before I put the lock piece on.
|I love the boxed pocket method, gives a nice clean pocket that doesn't need lots of pieces!|
|2 bigger pockets and a pen pocket right in the middle. Because pens like to hide!|
Cross body strap - I attached the connectors to the side panels, just above the boning. After I finished the purse, I took it to measure the customer and see where she wanted it to hang (I'm not ready for an adjustable vinyl strap yet!) and then sewed the strap on to the rectangular rings.
