The Felicity Bag

Hello! I'm excited to present my first finish for 2016 - The Felicity Bag! Originally I had planned to try to get this finished before Christmas to give to my aunt. She was looking for a bag to carry our jewelry and paperwork back and forth to the jeweler for biannual inspections. But I was not able to finish it for Christmas and as I was getting close to being done, I realized that the style really wasn't what she was looking for. She wanted a tote and this is truly a purse. So I have claimed it as my own and I made her a zippered tote bag. More on that in my next post. Here is my Felicity Bag.


I had a few issues with the pattern. Well, not with the pattern itself, but my understanding of the pattern. Luckily I follow Jennie, of Clover and Violet, on Instagram and was able to message her to get some help. She was so sweet and walked me through my trouble spots and then it was smooth sailing. Really, looking back, I don't know why I had such trouble but I guess my brain just wasn't processing! ;)

I really love this purse. It functions so well for me, is a great size and is very sturdy because of the ByAnnie's Soft and Stable. I really like working with the Soft and Stable. It is easy to sew and it makes a nice looking finished bag without being too heavy.

This is my first finish for quarter 1 of the 2016 Finish-A-Long, of which Jennie is a co-host. Click on the link below for more information on the finish-a-long.
