Phoebe Bag Sewing Pattern by Rebeka Lambert

One of the most popular free handbag patterns showcased here at PP – ever. Phoebe was one of Rebeka Lambert’s first designs.  Rebeka was inspired to create a “stylish, simple bag” that she could create in one session that did not resemble a tote! Rebeka also designed the beautiful Ruby Bag, the Short & Sassy Pleated Handbag, the Corabelle Bag, the Erica Bag, and the Everyday Reversible Tote, just to name a few.  I’ve actually re-written this post three times to feature some of the feedback as well as some samples of Phoebe bags that so many of you have created.

I particularly loved  osored’s “Phoebe Leather Stud Buckle Handbag”. This classy bag is sewn from a nice wool blend for fall and winter, with a cotton lining fabric, as well as a leather stud buckle that gives it that little bit of edge.  This bag inspired me to post the video below showing how to “harvest” wool (or wool-blend) fabric from garments.  

I came across some more Phoebe bags from teaandcakey over at Burda Style.  She showcases her Phoebe bags that she had enlarged by “a good few inches” to accommodate her needs and they turned out very well.  Take a look if you think Phoebe could be better bigger.  I think she’s perfect regardless her size.
