1/2 yard of material for the lining

The Anna bag is a vintage inspired ladylike handbag with charming details such as the button tabs for the handles and the gathered sides. The lining includes 4 ample pockets to safely tuck your keys or cell phone in.
Fabric suggestions include designer or home decorator fabrics. Tapestry with a pattern centered on the front/back pieces of the exterior bag will give a huge impact. Use a bright color of thread for a fun topstitching contrast. I only ask that you love the fabrics that you chose. Cotton and duponi (raw) silk are great for the lining of the bag.
This pattern will be shipped via USPS.
In the near future PDF patterns will be coming!
