Making Vintage bags.. the book


This is the Vivien, and although the book says it would make a good "small handbag".. I would suggest that it would only be good as an evening bag. Magnetic snap as a closure. Another Christmas gift.

I used fusible volume fleece on the lining and heavy-weight interfacing on the satin for the outside. A lighter weight interfacing for the fabric of the bow. Goes together OK - but rather fiddly to attach the lining to the shell and to top stitch the top.
