Here are some Dooney & Bourke inspired Handbags designed by Becky Roberts that I created for a few special gals on my gift giving list.
These amazing little cuties measure about 6" high x 5.5" wide and 2" deep inside.

I made five little gift card enclosures (3.5 x 2.5") to go inside each purse. Unfortunately I erased all the individual pictures of the gift card enclosures for each purse before I had downloaded them to my computer! So all I have are a tiny sampling of what they look like but you will get the idea : )

This wonderful downloadable pattern: "Tres Chic Handbags" was created by Becky Roberts and is available for only $3.95 through her website. It has been good for hours - and I do mean hours!! of fun!!
These purses inspired the sweetest ooohs and ahhhs! you could hope for when giving a gift of love. So fun!! so sweet!!
The small 3.5 x 2.5" cards with envelopes fit really nice but you could add all sorts of treats to your handbag in any theme.
I searched high and low for some little buckles and was excited to come across these by Tim Holtz. My engineer husband told me AFTER I had completed all and mailed some of my purses that I positioned the buckle upside down LOL Dooney & Bourke will frown! but alas I never got one complaint! heehee I will take the time to change that up on my next round of bags! : )
I also added a magnetic closure from Basic Grey behind each buckle so that the flap closes nicely. I failed to get a picture of that so just follow the link above to the product I used.
Be sure to take a look at the rest of the purses I have created (so far!) - pictured below and then blurf on over to Becky's blog and purchase the pattern to make your own! : ) I would really love it if you would send me a link to yours! It would be fun to see what you create.
Thank you for looking!
