hoop handled handbag

my friend (thanks, anna!) sent me the link to this great tutorial: hoop handled handbag by delia creates.
she made one.  i made one.  you could make one too. i used one of the fabrics i bought in taiwan.  

and a peek at the inside. i sewed in a lot of pockets.
one can never have too many pockets.

i wouldn't ordinarily choose this style of fabric for a handbag, but it just seemed so fun and so right.  


  1. Wow, super cute! I love the inside fabric! x

  2. That is so pretty! I had a bag like this when I was younger and I loved it to death. I just have a silly question, how do you get the fabric on the hoop?

  3. lorraine, the fabric is folded over the hoop and sewn on. there was a bit (maybe a lot) of swearing as i stabbed myself with needles and struggled with making the handle fit through as i sewed though.

  4. This bag looks really pretty! You have chosen loyely fabric! Could you give some details about the size? Might be 30cm long?

    1. thank you! yes it's about 30 cm long and 40 cm wide.
