Modified Coraline: Swoon Sewing Patterns

I made another bag! Yes, its another Swoon Coraline (affiliate) and it is modified! I used the small coraline and she looks so cute! Perfect for a little one!


It almost doesn't look like a Coraline. It has a strap like these ones I made and the same length. I cut the strap at 29" x 4". I folded it like bias tape (but not cut on the bias) and added batting. 


The front flap is just a shortened and narrowed main piece with a snap.


I also used the main pattern piece (taken in about an inch and a half) for the outer shell and the lining omitting the recessed zipper and thus, the need for the two interior pieces. It made the top stitching a little bit easier actually! And easier for little hands to get in and out of!


It is a cute little bag and I am proud of how it turned out. It was for a 5-year-old's birthday party on Saturday! We added some crayons to go with it! 


The back.. I tried fussy cutting the fabric the best that I could to have both Anna and Elsa decently displayed. What little girl doesn't love Elsa and Anna?


Honestly though, I am so excited about how it turned out! I got to use a new snap applicator that I have picked up. 


The Coraline clutch is a part of the Favorites Collection (affiliate) too!
