Handbag Pattern

This 1949 handbag by Cecilia M. Rose caught my eye.

I think getting a pattern from this requires some fiddling with the scanner to get each piece or hand trace each piece to photocopy. Remember that you really only need half of each piece to print out a pattern.

The pieces are the two sides and the two inside pockets. I would make it quilted and use bias tape to put it together and probably run some cord through all the bias tape and handles.

I had to come to the realization that I am not going to be able to use the resources and ideas I have so I'm sharing with you.
