Elf Handbag/ Simplicity 2080

Elf Handbag/ Simplicity 2080

I want to show you a little project I made last week. I used an It’s So Easy pattern, Simplicity 2080.

This is a perfect project for instant gratification. I used some more elf fabric leftover from Bella’s last pajama pants I made. And I added some cute gold button embellishments.

I used some red polka dotted fabric for lining.

And made my first flush zipper pocket. It was a little weird on the corners since I didn’t mark my cuts. So I covered the ugly with more buttons.

I don’t really have any experience making bags, yet I still think I’m smarter than the pattern companies. I skipped the interfacing in the handles. I wish I didn’t, because they are going to wrinkle a lot from use. Next time I’ll know better!

I can’t stress enough how easy this pattern is. I really enjoyed making it. I wish I had time to make a few for Christmas. This will be a great pattern to bust out when I need a quick gift.

See you again soon!

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    Can you please make a video to help guide me, for i am a beginner and have no experience with sewing but would like to give this bag a try. But could you try to sew bag A instead? Thank you for taking this into consideration!

    This turned out so cute! The polka dot pairs really well. I’m not big into the bag making world- but I gather they take their interfacing real serious ;)

      I hate interfacing. But I’m going to buckle down and fine tune my sewing. No more sloppy shortcuts!
