Hi friends, I pilled out my ‘Bags’ book again and made this Double Pocket Bucket Bag inspired by a 1970s suede version in the book.
This is a nice and easy gift bag to made and it’s very roomy too!
You can have the sides folded outwards to create the bucket-style handbag shown, or you can fold them inwards and have a more gift bag look.

Plastic ‘D’ rings are available here.
