Kelly Bags from Hermes (templates)



Made a sample to show you how the Kelly bags from Hermes look assembled. (These are from the Hermes site (US under travel the world of Hermes) They are found under "surprises" there's a purse icon that says "I want it." Click on that and the purse templates should load.) You need cookies enabled though. :O)

Size & Assembly:
They're smaller than they might look in the photo: they end up being 4" wide at the bottom, 1.5" deep 2 3'4" high (4" with the handle) A little finicky to get the belt parts in & the top closed nicely, but it was so cute it was worth the fuss n muss. You can cut an extra slit in the band around the front to make it sit tighter & hold the flap of the purse down (that's probably clear as mud now, but will make sense if ya make one of these.) ;O)

Here's a shot of it open:



You can download the PDfs
here & here & here.


The sweet tree pattern on this is actually on the PDF (though it comes out looking like fancy designer paper!) :O) I printed it on Naturals cardstock from SU, since i like the heft of it for boxes...There's a plain version of this too, for stampin,' and other of funky styles.

Happy Craftiness!



P.S. Like purses? There's a whole pack of 'em hangin' out here.
