{Fairport Purse} Radiant Home Studio 2nd Anniversary


Hey guys! I am here today blogging along with Radiant Home Studio 2nd Anniversary Blog Tour. I first heard of Sara's patterns on a small blogging group fairly recently when she spoke of doing this tour for her patterns. I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to try out her patterns.


Because I am such a sucker for zip pouches, I chose the Fairport to sew up! I have to say that I was WOWED at all the options that Sara included in the pattern.

Included options:
  • zip closure
  • snap tab closure
  • magnetic snap closure
  • two sizes
  • wrist strap
  • shoulder strap
  • no strap
 You can make so many different purses with that many options. Even better, I create my own additional options. The outer part of the purse has gathers in the original pattern, but I wanted a super simple pouch, so I omitted them and instead cut 2 extra lining pieces for the outer. I also omitted the strap because I needed something that I could put my makeup in and throw in my purse.




The pleats along the bottom corners give extra room for packing more important goodies into it. By doing the super simple pouch, it would make the perfect gift for Christmas, or even a super special "gift wrap".


I used a scrap of one of my favorite fabrics for the yoke outer and lining, and for the outer I used a medium weight denim suiting and I just love the way that it turned out! I learned something new too. The instructions that Sara gives for installing the zipper was new to me, and I always like to learn new things to add to my repertoire.




If you would like to try one of Sara's patterns, now is the time! She is having a sale for 20% off using code 'birthdaycelebration' through 12/11/15.
