Beautiful Double Pocket Bucket Bag

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.

12 x 12 paper pad available here.

Plastic ‘D’ rings are available here.
