Make this eye-catching bag from bright statement fabrics or tone it down to suit your taste. Whatever fabric you choose, you're sure to love this classy handbag. It boasts a collapsible gusset, which expands out to full depth when you need some extra space, and the metal twist/turn lock adds a nice professional finish.
Featured in Sewing World Magazine November 2013 issue.
