Can a Woman Have Too Many Purses?

I’ve kind of been on this Amy Butler kick recently and have fallen in love with her Frenchy and Kimberly bags.

I purchased some fabulous fabric from Tonic Living for my very own Frenchy bag.

This fabric will be the exterior.

And this will make up the lining.

I plan on making an exact replica of this Kimberly bag. The fabric was purchased from The fabric is actually not as vibrant as what you see in the picture, but it’s pretty close. I think this will go nicely with some white capris and an frilly white blouse!

After missing out on Pattern Review’s fitted shirt contest, I entered the handbag contest in hopes of entering the Kimberly bag. However, at this point I’m not sure I will make the deadline for that contest either. We’ll see…

  1. After that mishap with my Butterick dress, I decided to take a break from apparel sewing. I’m just burned out! LOL.

  2. Cute!! I have both of these and have NOT made them! LOL Maybe seeing yours will inspire me to pull mine out. I also picked up a vogue bag that I want to make lol. So many patterns, so little time! LOL
