- in my next life, I want to be the woman in these pictures – is this YOU tissuepaper?
- this is really a fabulous pattern and I can’t wait to make it. I have some wonderful yardage of dupioni silk in turquoise and purple. I think I’ll have to make a muslin first, and see if I can make the bag entirely reversible. I wonder how long I need to make the handle if I want it to go over my shoulder and across my chest?

This elegant industrial ventilator bag is made with a medium-weight, slightly metallic vinyl, practical for a bag and ideal for showing off the sculpted pleats. It can also be made with a soft leather or canvas, or even a heavy duchess silk satin.
Super cute tote made with bias tape!
This looks far beyond my current abilities, but what a fun purse!
Picture rich tutorial for making this knotted-handle bag. Love the yo-yo details!
I want to print this multiple-page project out while I’m learning to make it, but my computer/printer doesn’t want to print the pictures and text out correctly on consecutive pages. Does anyone know how to turn the images and instructions into a .pdf?
