Charade is a curvy purse that has been designed for beginners! This bag features a magnetic snap closure, two interior zipper pockets, corner accents, and an adjustable crossbody strap. Charade is a very quick sew. Choose to use cork fabric or vinyl for the contrast fabric if you’d like! The name and design of this pattern was inspired by one of my favorite classic movies, Charade.
There are two sizes included in the pattern. The finished size of the crossbody is 10″ wide, 10″ high, and 3″ deep. The finished size of the tote is 13″ wide, 13″ high, and 4″ deep.
Included are step-by-step graphics to help make the written directions easier to understand. Also included are many sewing techniques and tips to help you achieve a quality, finished project. This pattern is designed to help you learn and expand your sewing skills! From start to finish, this bag takes about 4 hours to make.
Try using our Faux Metal Zippers by the Yard for this project! Easily cut and sew through the zipper’s nylon teeth, while achieving the appearance of metal teeth. Make five Charade Bags from one package of Sallie Tomato Zippers by the Yard.
RECOMMENDED FABRICS: You can use quilt weight cotton, canvas, denim, or linen for the exterior. I recommend quilt weight cotton for the lining. Try using cork or vinyl for the contrast, or you can use quilt weight cotton, canvas, denim, or linen.
