Sew Sweetness

Accordion Bag

This confident beginner-friendly bag features a pleated flap with magnetic snap closure. It is a soft, structured purse that has plenty of room for all the essentials! You can use fabric scraps to make the flap patchwork like I did, or a flap made out of the same fabric would be great too!

The pdf pattern includes 10 pages of sewing instructions, complete with 22 step-by-step color photos.

Finished Size: 11” long x 7-1/2” tall

 

Supplies Needed to Make this Bag:

- 1/2 yard for the exterior

- 11 scraps, each 3” x 9”, for the flap

          (if you would prefer a flap that is all in one fabric, you will need a piece 27” x 9”)

- 9” x 9” square of fabric for the piping on the flap

- 1/2 yard for the lining

- 1-1/2 yards Pellon® SF101 Shape-Flex® fusible woven interfacing

- 1/2 yard of By Annie’s Soft and Stable™, available at local quilt shops or on-line

(Soft and Stable is a thin, foam sew-in interfacing; one of my testers also recommends automotive headliner fabric in place of the Soft and Stable)

Helpful Hint: Pellon #987F Thermolam Fusible Interfacing(a needled fusible fleece) may also be used as a substitution for the Soft and Stable.
