BHL Draft It Yourself - Marianne Evening Bag
MARIANNE EVENING BAG
A chic evening bag to match your finest handmade frocks! This DIY project uses up minimal fabric, can be sewn in under an hour and is the ultimate palette cleanser or sewjo reactivator. Fully lined, securely zipped and shaped with angled side seams and box corners, the finished bag can be worn as a classic shoulder bag, or adjust the strap to transform it into an elegant purse that dangles off your wrist.

The world of fabrics is your oyster with this project! Soft leather, sequin fabric, brocade, jacquard, velvet, denim, or anything else that takes your fancy!
Lightweight fabrics will need to be interfaced to add structure. For the lining, anything from calico to silk will work just fine.
