Bucklebee Handbag Workshop
Tuesday May 14, 2019
Click HERE for printable Registration Form
The thoughtfully designed Bucklebee Charming Handbag is slim, structured, and deceptively spacious. It's a perfect first bag; easy and quick to construct. Charming is 8” tall, 10” wide, and 4” deep at the base, and can be worn as a cross-body or shoulder bag. The interior features Bucklebee's signature large zipper pocket and two flat pockets to keep your essentials close at hand. Charming is the perfect bag for a lunch date, an afternoon of shopping, and makes a welcome gift.
Charming looks gorgeous made up in ultrasuede, lace, or patchwork, too! It's easy shaping lends itself well to specialty fabric.
