Francis Albert Pixie Pleated Handbag/Purse

I made this guy today. The husband had a button up shirt that really looked fantastic on him, but one small place on the shirt got a spot that couldn’t be repaired. So, I recycled it. The fabric was too stunning to waste, so I cut it with my pixie pleated bag pattern to use it as lining, and then paired it with this really great dark navy fabric. Hence, it’s a beautiful bag, which is “green” inspired and useful!

I named it after good ol’ blue eyes, because it seemed to have it’s own class and is pretty dignified, and it’s the style of bag that is timeless and classic. Sadly, there's only enough shirt to make two of these.
