Sweetheart Bag Pattern Review

Review of the Sweetheart Bag by the Couture Academic.

The truth is... I loved this pattern.  The instructions are fantastic, it took less than a few hours and I love the final product.  It inspires me to make some bag patterns of my own.  I am afraid it also caused a trip to JoAnns and some impulse bag-making hardware purchases with a gift card I got from Santa.





Plus, making this gave me a much needed but reluctant break from rotting my mind playing the Tiny Tower app.  It is an absurdly addicting and stupid game.  Which I know shouldn't count as a plus in a pattern review, but it does.

I get nothing from this endorsement.  The author of the pattern doesn't even get anything.  She is giving it away, which is crazy because it is that nice.





If you are reading this blog, you (let's be honest) probably have a fabric stash that is slightly larger than you openly display/admit exists to family members. Meaning, you could be making this cute handbag right bloody nowDownload the pattern (for free!) from Craftsy.









Look out for some handbag patterns of my own in my patterns section in the next couple of months.  One size fits all, no matter how much chocolate you have had.  I am not sure how I haven't gone down this road sooner.


Happy sewing!
