This Venus handbag is one of my newer creations that plays with 3 different fabrics. The outside is s lightly textured burgundy "Bossa Nova" cotton blend, paired with a beige floral patchwork looking canvas.The 3rd fabric is the lining, a cotton fabric by Michelle Engel Bensko, "Birds, natural Dogwood".

The lining is quilted with the interfacing giving it some softness and stability. There are no pockets inside this bag.

Tabs with 3/4" olive & khaki buttons are used to attach the tubular dark butter colored marbled round acrylic handles.

The closure is a magnetic snap placed inside at the center tabs.


10 1/2" at the widest

7" center top to bottom

2 1/4" deep

5" round acrylic handles

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I wanted to make a bag that was a decent size, has easy access and was hand held. This is what I came up with. The first one I made was not split into different fabrics on the outside. That idea happened when I could not decide between 2 fabrics and realized I did not have enough of either, but they went - poof! I used them both. The tabs for the handles have been attached various ways depending on the fabric type. The one thing that is the same for all, the tabs overlap the outside and have a decorative button attached.

And the name - my son wanted it to be called "The Alien" because when it is opened, it looks like the pod from the movies. But I went with Venus...more like the venus flower trap - less creepy.
