Noriko Handbag Fabric Information

Lazies, Here’s the skinny on the supplies I used for the Noriko Handbag. The four cover and four lining pieces are all cut from the same pattern piece.  You’ll need 1/3 yard of fabric for the cover and 1/3 yard for the lining. I used the blue dragonfly for the cover. I used two different fabrics (1/3 yard total) for the lining just to mix things up a bit. Two lining pieces are Moss green and the other two are Purple. The fabric codes are listed with their pictures below.

These are the three different fabrics I used from the
Kona Bay Fabrics, Akino collection.

 Akino blue
AKIN-01 Blue

Akino moss Akino purple 
AKIN-03 Moss              AKIN-03 Purple

The button on the cover of Noriko has two functions. First, of course, it’s the closure. Second, it happens to be an embellishment for the body of the dragonfly. I fussy-cut the fabric to make sure the button would be attached between the wings of the dragonfly. The pattern piece in the magazine includes the location of the button to assist in fussy-cutting.

I used a JHB International button for the closure. You can see the button that I used here:

It is number 71983, it is on the bottom row, second from the left.

    Is this bag going to come out as a kit or a home sew pattern? If sew when?

    You ran a free pattern for this handbag in December 2008. Do you still have it? Could I get a copy? I am working on Christmas gifts and I need to make a nice bag for my friend who is so into bags, totes and purses.

    Thank you,
