Multi-tasking in purse form. This is the Betsy Bag, from the pattern by Betsy LaHonta.
The amazing tan fabric that looks like leather? It is actually a paper product called Kraft-tex.
It can be washed and dried, cut and sewn.
The top of the bag can be tucked in so it behaves like a purse.
Then pop that out and move the handles and voila! It’s a tote.
There are drawstrings so I can keep all my birds from flying away.
I just happened to have (not kidding) two hot pink cord locks in my collection.
The lining has ukuleles all over.
Added bonus – I got to use lots of shiny hardware!
