Elsa fold over pouch - LBG studio pattern

Continuing on with my Frozen inspired projects for the week, this one was one of the BIGGEST hits!
An ELSA HANDBAG!!!! (my daughter squealed for like 20min!)

I used the fold over pouch pattern by LBG studio, it is part of the Sew Fab bundle sale going on this week

 Such a great, easy and FAST pattern! seriously I made two in under an hour! The fist one I made with a fun graphic floral print from Ikea and a faux gold leather.

 I didn't change any dimensions to the original pattern, except I did add some small tabs to either side to attach a shoulder strap. ( My little one tends to loose purses if they are not strapped on her) 

It is a really great size, not too big, but big enough to actually hold stuff

I used a vintage sheet for the lining, a fun print in navy, ivory and gold. I finished it off with a navy zipper to accent the lining

I liked this one so much, I decided to keep it for myself, so I had to make another one for my daughter.....and when I asked her what color she wanted it to be, her answer was..."Elsa"....go figure!

So I pulled an image from the web and using iron-on transfer paper, I printed and pressed it on to a white canvas fabric. I adjusted the size of the bag slightly to fit the 8 x 10 image.

I constructed it the same as before, and added the loops and strap. I used a blue floral quilting cotton for the lining.

For fun, I made up a quick little zipper charm with some beads and a snowflake charm (all 'borrowed' from one of my daughters beading kits)

I know there  will be many more of these - such a perfect birthday gift for all her friends!

  1. Love it! Do you have a tutorial on how you made the strap? I have some strappy purse patterns but not of them have the hardware and are much shorter

  2. I can defiantly work on one for you - It would not be ready for a couple weeks though, this week is crazy!

  3. What type/brand of transfer paper do you use? The quality of this image/transfer looks wonderful!

  4. Do you have a good tutorial for iron on paper? What brand did you use? Do you have to have a certain pixilation on the photo from the web? So you print it on the iron paper to canvas? Sorry I haven't worked with iron on before. My girls would love for me to create something similar. Do you have the direct link of the Elsa? And maybe a good one for Anna and Olaf?

    1. the paper is HP - i will try to find the image so i can link it (it is actually a screen saver image so the quality was pretty good to print on a 8.5x11 sized paper, if you google search your images with the size filter set to large, then all the images should print well for you. send me an email christine@heidiandfinn.com and i can send you more info :) thanks Nicole

    2. Thank you so much! I think his would be super sweet to make for my preschoolers graduation :) I'll be emailing about the mod for a small strap to fit my 4 yr old thanks for your inspiration. You're amazing and I. Excited to see your Norah!
