I've updated my patterns!
Isle De Paradiso Handbag

Introducing Olivia!

At long last! My latest pattern! Olivia! Special thanks to Naomi for suggesting a name for her! I really struggle with that part and I would still be sitting, stewing over a name if it wasn't for Naomi's suggestion! I love it! Suits her perfectly, don't you think?

Olivia is my most Advanced pattern to date and there is lots to learn from her construction. Don't let that frighten you though, because the instructions are VERY comprehensive and well photographed and as long as you have some bag making experience under your belt, I am sure you will follow it though just fine! PLUS I am always just an email away if you do get stuck! Oh and just for the record, YES...I actually DO answer my emails! LOLL

Special thanks to my wonderful Pattern testers Maria Vazquez, Lotta from Sweden and Naomi who have helped me tweak the pattern and iron out any typos or other errors which are so easily missed be ME! With their help I can proudly say the Olivia Pattern has been thoroughly tested to ensure your enjoyment and trouble free construction!

The Olivia is not only roomy and functional but with loads of pockets you will be super organized as well! There are 2 front flap pockets with magnetic catches, two elasticized pockets on the side and a zipper pocket on the back. The top of your bag closes with a recessed zipper so everything inside is nice and secure PLUS inside you will find another zipper pocket and 2 patch pockets as well!

Finished bag size = Approx. 41cm (16") X 25cm (10") X 10cm ( 4")

Rated advanced – for experienced bag makers! Having said that, there ARE lots of photos to help you and it is more time consuming than it is difficult! :)
