Art Deco Bags pays homage to the Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s in a fun new way. Trims are the focus of the design and a variety of looks can be achieved using various prints, trims or color schemes. This cute accessory can be made quickly and is a great way to use up scraps, as only a small amount of fabric is required! This set of bags is designed to be used for 18" dolls, but will work for other sized dolls as well, and directions are included for altering the strap length for different dolls. Each style is fully lined and feature optional snap closure. This PDF sewing pattern features three views: a wristlet, a purse, and a tote bag.
Complete the look with the Art Deco Dress! And be sure to check out the pattern hack to find out how to make the tunic shown in the pictures.

This is a great pattern. So many options.
These bags are quick and easy to make--and can be made from scraps!! The pattern coordinates with the Art Deco dress pattern and makes awesome sets for your doll!
I really enjoyed making all 3 versions of this pattern. All 3 bags have completely enclosed seams and are functional. The directions are very well written and include tips and tricks to sew them up with ease. I also sew full size bags for adults and I was quite impressed with the details in these miniatures.
