Lyla May Handbag
The Lyla May Handbag is a throwback to the frame purse handbags of a previous era. Available in multiple sizes, you can make this purse as a small bag for just the essentials or full sized shoulder bag. There is an optional zippered divider pocket and slip pockets on the inside. Feel classy with the Lyla May Handbag over your arm!
The sewing is suitable for a confident beginner, but the frame makes this an intermediate bag. There are instructions on altering the pattern to work with the dimensions of other frames.
