My dear friend Margaret celebrated a milestone birthday this year, and I just knew the Oriole Bag by Sew Sweetness would be perfect for her! I found this cute purple cotton print at my local JoAnn Fabrics store, as well as the purple lining.
I tried my best to match the fabric pattern, and was pleased with the result :-)
I liked that the pattern had instructions for an adjustable shoulder strap, which can be worn as either over the shoulder -or-as a crossbody bag. The necessary hardware included the rectangular strap holders, the adjustable strap slider and the twist lock closure.
Two types of interfacing were used, both Pellon SF-101 Shape Flex fusible woven interfacing as well as foam headliner fabric.
One inside pocket was placed for either a phone or set of keys.
A fun project for a special friend....Happy Birthday, Margaret!
