What you will need:
Outer fabric – A fat quarter of quilting cotton – or mix and match two contrasting fabrics.
Medium fusible interfacing – I use Vilene F220 or Pellon SF101.
Fusible fleece – light weight fusible fleece works well just to add a little body.
Seam allowance is 1cm (3/8”) throughout unless otherwise stated.
The seam allowance is included in the pattern pieces.
Level: Easy – beginner friendly
Approximate finished dimensions: 15.75 x 11cm (6 ¼ x 4 ¼ “)
Cutting Guide:- Print the pattern pages you require on US letter-sized paper or A4.
IMPORTANT – ensure page scaling is set to NONE or ACTUAL SIZE and ‘SHRINK TO FIT’ or ‘FIT TO PAGE’ are turned off
There is a 1” square control box shown on the pattern, ensure it measures correctly before you start cutting. Cut out all paper pattern pieces as follows.

Tips to achieving a nice neat purse:
- Trim your fleece down by 1cm (3/8″) all the way around so it isn’t adding bulk to your seams. If you are using a heavier fabric you can cut a little more from the bottom straight edge of the fleece
- Use lightweight fabric only for the closure strap
- Clip your bottom corners well before turning through
You can also make a men’s version – here’s one I made in coated ripstop, I didn’t add the fleece in this one.

Absolutely love this purse,, but have no way to download pattern. No printer etc. is it possible to get measurements of each piece so I can cut pieces needed? Is there somewhere to find measurements? Would appreciate your help with this. Would love to make my 88 year old Mum one as she struggles with other fasteners…thank you.
