It’s time to release the next pattern from our Fall collection! So it’s really no secret that these Wives of Whitewood would not have fared well during Prohibition. So when we thought about what we wanted to design from the raging 1920s, we decided to make a chic little wristlet that we could have sported while partying at our local speakeasy.
It’s a fun special occasion bag that fits just your essentials for a night out on the town.
The bag features a magnetic snap closure and includes instructions to make an optional card holder so you can bring only the cards you need.
Speakeasy can be made more luxe by adding beaded trim to feel like a modern day flapper. We bought ours at the amazing U-Fab Outlet.
For these two bags, we used coordinating fabrics from the Timeless Treasures Mosaic collection (C-8616 C-8610), and we do think the fabrics give them a timeless look.
The front is pieced together in a modern angular design that looks great in both prints and solids.
We also think Speakeasy would look fantastic in a special occasion fabric like satin. We have some plans to sew that up and will share pictures as soon as we’re done.
The PDF pattern has 12 pages, over 80 color photos, and 3 pattern pieces. You can buy it via instant download in our Etsy or Craftsy shops for only $9. The finished size is about 7 1/2” x 5” at the opening (6 1/2” at the widest point).
We’ll be back soon to talk about a sweet giveaway we’re participating in and then shortly after we’ll release our 1950s inspired clutch – it features a bold design that we’re really excited to show you!
