Same pattern with a few adjustments

Only have one good handbag pattern?  No problem!  If a pattern is well made and the sewing sequence is well thought out by the designer - as is the case with Keyka Lou patterns - then you can play with them & get many looks from only one pattern.

Here I have taken the Many Pocket Tote pattern, moved the fold on the pattern to make it wider, made the closure flap bigger, and changed the handle...

The gorgeous Pierre Frey fabric makes a striking focus fabric, teamed with fun spots for a nice contrast.

Then another look:  I kept the bigger flap, added a zip and made a single, adjustable handle...

This gorgeous thick velvet is from Natasha Marshall and teamed here with a cute apple fabric for a touch of whimsy. 

Go on, give it a go!!
