In this step-by-step sew-along I’ll be sharing how to construct your very own Miss Maggie Handbag, a free pattern from Emmaline Bags.

The Sew-Along

The Miss Maggie Handbag is a great pattern to build your bag making skills with simple techniques such as adding various hardware and working with different types of padding. 

This pattern is a free pattern that you can download at Emmaline Bags, which is also a great place to purchase your bag making hardware.
