I wanted a little single strap purse to take on my vacation. I wanted it light enough to just carry a couple diapers wipes and my wallet. I also wanted it small enough that I could just shove it in my Vera Bradley duffle bag for the flight.
I looked at a couple of stores and didn't find anything so I decided to make one myself.
There wasn't any patterns on pinetrest so I made my own.
The dimensions is 15 1/2" wide 10" tall (not including the strap) and 4" deep. I also used bias tape to finish the edges.
Start by sewing the corners first and then I ironed down the seams. Don't forget to sew in the pocket before sewing the purse together.
Next press all of the seams on the lining and shell of the purse.
