The pattern for the Bella purse has 33 pages of instructions which include 62 step by step colour photos.

Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

ALL my patterns have measurements for both Metric and Imperial and seam allowances are included too!

The Bella handbag/purse is not only practical BUT it’s fun too with loads of pockets! Complete with two zippered pockets (One exterior at the back and one inside) to keep your valuables secure.
