Fairport Purse & Pouch

I tested a bag from a new designer, or at least Sara is new to me. The pattern is called the Fairport Purse and Pouch by Sara from Radiant Home Studio . She sells patterns and has a blog too. The Fairport Purse is larger and has grommets and a strap, whereas the pouch is a smaller version without grommets and you can add a wrist strap. I decided to make the larger of the two and then realized I didn't have grommets, so I made it into a large pouch, but didn't add the wrist strap in time. LOL!!! Still, it came out looking just fine and it's not so large that it really needs a strap anyhow. There are a lot of variations you can make to this bag, such as adding a shoulder or wrist strap or not, adding a pocket or not,adding a flap, etc. The yoke part on the bag would be a great place to add an applique or embroidery or patchwork. The pattern is written for a confident beginner, but those with more experience can add to this bag as it suits your needs or taste. You can purchase this or Sara's other patterns here. Without further ado here is my Fairport purse:
Here is my Fairport purse.
I added a divided pocket inside my purse. This pattern doesn't include pocket instructions, but it's easy to add a slip pocket if you want to.
This photo is the cover of Sara's pattern and show you the 2 bags in the 2 sizes. You can see here how it would look if you added a flap or either strap.
