 Finished dimensions of the Restoration Handbag are 7 1/2" H x 10" W x 4" D. 

If you loved the Restoration Handbag but don't need to carry as much stuff, this is a smaller version with some new features. You have the familiar classic style, but it includes a zipper top closure for more security, and another optional handle construction method for you. This is a great style for any type of fabric you want try! I made them from waxed canvas, vinyl, faux leather, cotton and this gorgeous frosted TPU vinyl from MoreMeKnow that you see here! Interfacing will depend on the fabrics you choose. This is intended to be a structured exterior but some fabrics will not need additional interfacing for structure. The frosted TPU paired with water resistant canvas required no additional stabilizers. Have fun and be creative!  

This pattern is written for intermediate bag makers, but even my beginner skill level testers were able to follow along and make this, without the aid of a video. You can do it and we are all here to help! 

There is a video tutorial available for this pattern if you prefer visual instruction. Michelle Graham from mgrahamsews walks you through every step of each skill level in a sew-along style format in the order the pattern is written. If you would like to skip ahead you can but you might miss an important tip!  You will still need to purchase the pattern here to get measurements, etc. as she will never refer to them in the videos. 

Included in the listing are the following:

  • Clearly written instructions and color photos
  • Fabric recommendations for domestic vs industrial machines
  • Templates for Home Printer Use (half pieces to fit to letter paper)
  • A0 copy shop/projector file (full size template pieces)
  • SVG cutting files (full size template pieces)
  • Inspiration File featuring tester makes to help you choose your favorite features!

Please note: Acrylic templates have not been approved for commercial sale for this design. 

Please do not purchase them from anyone that sells templates of this design as they have not been given permission to do so and both you, and the seller would be in violation of intellectual property laws.

In the event that acrylic templates are approved for any KMGhandmade pattern in the future, the approved seller will be clearly linked on my website, under the pattern listing description so you know they have been given permission to sell them and that the designer has been fairly compensated for the original design.

If you like making this pattern a lot and would like sturdier templates for personal use, I recommend purchasing the plastic cutting sheets from the dollar store to trace them out. I do this myself, and it is an inexpensive way to save your pattern pieces rather than reprinting paper ones.
