I'm super excited to show you all my newest design, the Bergen Bag!!
The Bergen Bag is named after the beautiful city Bergen in Norway, which I visited a few times in my childhood. This bag with its 10" height and 13" width (25x33cm) is the perfect everyday handbag, and is such a cool use for the metal frame closures!
This bag can be made with the Emmaline ended frames, the closed ended standard 7 1/2" (19cm) frames like for the Paris Purse OR with a zipper closure! I'll show all versions of this bag over the next few weeks while the pattern is developed and tested.
It can be made with handle connectors like this version, or without, it has a high bottom version (this has the high bottom) and a low bottom version so you should be able to customize this bag to fit your preferences
This bag was made with Tula Pink's beautiful All Star fabric, and lined with her beauitful De La Luna line.
It has my favourite lining zipper pocket, which allows you to make a zipper pocket without cutting any opening or turning over, risking a bulky and ugly edge around the zipper. Instead it's discreetly nestled in the seam.
It also has a number of slip pockets for our cellphone and other things you want easily accessable.
I hope you'll like it as much as I do!
