Handbag - (Box Bag) How to Sew Tutorial

About: Training as a couture dressmaker in the 80's started a career spanning decades in textile production and teaching. Along the way I worked with inspirational designers like Carol Waller from 'No walking Canva...

This bag is still my favourite for popping into town. Its small and cute, but has enough space for essentials a couple of inside pockets and of cause the cool outside pockets. They are great for tissues, sweets etc so you don't have to open the bag if you need them. The zip fastening is recessed and quite easy to do! Try it and you will be surprised how simple the technique is.

I used to make the bag with my beginners sewing course and although there were some disasters.... :) it was the most popular bag project I ever did in my beginners classes.

The featured bags were all made by you tube viewers, apart from the red polka dot one (I made that one) and the row of bags was created by students in my class.
