Phoebe Bag, repeat

This free pattern may quickly be turning into the one I choose as a go-to girl gift item. It’s such a classic shape, and as I mentioned the last time I made this, it’s a good size and fits nicely under your arm. I was able to sew this up during one of Jude’s naptimes, so it’s a great quick project. Definitely went quicker the second time! I made this Phoebe bag as a birthday gift for a good friend of mine. I love this fabric… It’s been sitting in my stash waiting to be used and I love it in this application. I also love the yellow interior!

I may need to make a few more of these as holiday gifts! Holiday sewing, here we come!

    Where do you shop for your material? I was thinking of checking out Common Threads.

      I buy a lot of my fabrics online… I follow several fabric designer’s blogs as well as blogs that showcase fabrics, like… (Shes an Austinite too and on Sundays she lists all of the online fabric sales for the week!). This particular fabric I got when several friends and I helped a lady clean out her fabric stash that had taken over her closet. $25 for a big paperbag filled with designer fabric scraps!!

      I wish I could but I can’t! The pattern isn’t mine so I can’t sell it… Copyright laws…

    First this is so pretty! But I couldn’t access from the “free Pattern Link” – Is it no longer available?
