Free Purse Sewing pattern The Melissa Handbag has been popular for a long time, and since I am no longer selling on my potatoboutique etsy account, I thought it was high time I gave this pattern away free. YAY!!! The Melissa is a roomy shoulder bag that is patchy FUN!!! The knotted handle is comfy soft and all your items are within easy reach. The interior features one zippered pocket (optional) and a divided patch pocket to make it easy to find your keys, lipstick and cell-phone!
