Claire Handbag Pattern

Get ready to Stack, Chop and Swap! Stack two fabrics, chop 'em up, then swap the pieces around, and the front and back of Claire will be different. They will be mirror images of each other because of the fabric swap, with a fun angled center pocket.

Claire and her handles stand up nice and tall, making this open-top tote great for a purse, tote or project bag.

Features short or medium length fabric handles and 2 outside plus 6 inside pockets.
