Let's Book It: Lazy Girl's Runaround Bag Pattern
I was afraid to try this purse pattern. The last step kept confusing me. I would read the instructions and everything was fine until I read that last step of confusing instructions. That's when the pattern would go back in the plastic bag and back on the shelf. Fortunately I read a "tip" for this purse pattern. "Just follow the instructions in the last step just as they are written." I did and everything turned out perfectly. This is really a cool pattern and FUN to make. Before I knew it, I made seven of them. Below are the fronts and backs of four of them.
The back has a pocket, perfect for maps or sun glasses.
I added a piece of folded fabric in the "purse sandwich" so the inside would have two compartments. Because this purse is small and doesn't hold a lot, it's perfect for traveling or running errands. A purse strap made with a WOF strip makes it long enough to slip over the head making it a crossover purse. Tie a knot in the strap to make it shorter and kid friendly.
