Carol’s Convertible Purse is a shoulder bag with a magnetic snap closure (with or without a flap), 2 front pockets and a back zipper pocket. Inside there is another zippered pocket and a patch pocket. By pulling the handles along the side panels, Carol’s Purse instantly “converts” into Carol’s Backpack. Click for a video demonstration
You get 2 purses in one. I love the backpack when I am grocery and mall shopping because it allows me to shop hands free. Approx. finished size 12”W x 11” H
I sell a very nice heavy weight webbing/belting that I use in most of my totes. See Webbing . 2 1/4 yards is needed for a Carol’s Convertible Purse. If you are making fabric handles, you do not need the above mentioned webbing.
Additional Notions needed:
1 – magnetic snap
1 – 9″ zipper (to match main fabric)
1 – 7″ zipper (to match lining fabric)
