The ’Cute’ Constance shoulder bag is the ultimate ready to go messenger! A versatile purse making pattern, simple to sew with a touch of couture to finish professionally. This shoulder bag can even be made into a ‘cute’ little clutch purse if you prefer.
The classic quilt style look to the front and back is easily achieved using a contrasting thread or a leather/cloth tape…and don’t worry as we will provide the template for you to match those quilt lines and finish in a colour of your choice.
Just imagine a vibrant red on red, or a rich contrasting navy on cobalt blue or even a black on white to match your Sunday best? She really is a catwalk show stopper!With a darted front to allow for that extra bit of room for your bits ‘n’ bobs and a shoulder strap that can be made to suit your desired length or a slip-through clutch handle subtly fixed to the back…what more could you wish for!

This sewing pattern has been designed for a non fraying double faced fabric with good body. Using a quality 100% wool felt will give the ‘Cute’ Constance good posture and a luxurious life long feel …and one that will last for many seasons (no fraying or selvedges to worry about also!). Wool felt can easily be sewn on a domestic sewing machine with a walking foot or Teflon coated foot.
