I had a couple of hiccups with the zipper it was tricky. But for my first zipper and lining combo I think it came out wonderfully. I hand stitched this so it’s a little rough but I really enjoyed doing it and practice makes perfect…I hope hehe. Listed below are the two links I used as reference in putting in the lining and zipper. Both are have good points.

Hey guys!

As you know by now I began to freestyle these handbags for the little girls in our family. This will be a quick tutorial not too much in detail because it is a work in progress. Here are my notes for the handbag with the Bow:

Create an edging. You can create the shell edging as I did. If you need instructions you can click on the link here.

Now create a band that is the width and length of you treble chain one row.

Weave this through and attach in center front.

Create you bow and attach it to the band. Leave long tails! This makes it so much easier.

I will be working on my lining, zipper, and straps this weekend and will keep you guys posted on those. Enjoy!

Little Lady Hand Bag with Bow

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. I have been busy at work on my Little Lady Hand bags. I have modified this pattern and added a bow. I could not be more pleased with the way its turning out!

In this photo you can see the two bags I am working on. One for my daughter and one for her cousin for Christmas. I plan on using this very cute cupcake cloth for the lining and a white zipper. I will also add straps but have yet to find the right size metal rings (I’m so picky lol). I will post the instructions to this in the following days if anyone is interested in making one for a Christmas present stay tuned for that. Tonight I will just give you a list of materials I am using:

  • 4.5mm hook
  • zipper
  • colorful lining cloth
  • two different color yarns in contrasting colors
  • 2 metal rings for straps
  • needle/yarn/pins if you decided to do the lining (optional)
