You don't need EXPENSIVE clips, rulers, or machines to sew, you DO need a little creativity & a willingness to try…..

Sweet Pea!


(This post has affiliate links, I would be compensated if you purchased another pattern from the website, but this pattern is actually FREE!)

I think it’s fair to say we all love FREE stuff, right?  I test patterns for Blue Calla Patterns and I tested this adorable little pattern a while ago.  This is the Sweet Pea!  It’s a FREE pattern.  Isn’t it just so … sweet?  My daughters love this size of bag, but it’s also a great size for adults too.


I used Anna Maria Horner’s Fibs and Fables combined with a cinnamon coloured faux leather on this one.  It’s outlined in piping on the side panels, which by the way have a very refreshing silhouette.IMG_5778EDIT

You also will learn how to make that little tassel yourself and can apply that to whatever bag you want!
This bag is fairly easy to make, and also quick, so it’s great for a quick birthday or teacher gift.

Enough already from me…go get your FREE pattern here.  Come back and let me know what you think??

I am a Canadian maker of fun and functional handbags and wallets. I have been sewing since I was 6 years old, and love to share my favourite patterns, tips and tricks I have discovered along the way. Some of my links are affiliate links, that I am compensated for, if you purchase the pattern. HOWEVER, I only share patterns that I really love and have actually made! For example: You will never see an Amazon, Weight Loss, or Printer Cartridge Affiliates on here!

  1. I’d steal this bag just for that flap. I NEED that fabric. (Ok, and your work is pretty phenomenal too.)

  2. Love the bag! Great start on your blog!
