It is my 'winter' purse this year - so it has gotten a lot of use (hence, it is a little bit dirty and it is starting to pill). This is the Streetcar Bag by Indygo Junction, and you can find the pattern here.
I love the big buttons on the front flap. The bottom two corners are box corners. The strap is the perfect size to put over your shoulder or carry. I also like the shape of the bag; the narrow top is easy for me to get things in and out of but still keeps things in.
The flap is held on by a magnetic snap.
Under the flap is my favorite feature of the purse - pleats.
I just love how the fabric comes together there.
Inside is a zippered pocket (the first time I tried this style of pocket).
I believe it was optional piece in the pattern - but I always think taking the time to add a pocket is worth it. I always have something little I want to keep track of!
I am so happy with this purse! Overall, the wool was nice and easy to sew.
It was fun for me to explore a new type of fabric!
Has anyone else tried sewing with wool?
