Awe Venice! This handmade Venice bag is one of the ways to remind me that I would love to visit Venice on a future date. This Hoffman Venice Wanderlust panel hit that mark for me. A friend of mine saw my bag made with this print and wanted a different size and shape for herself. I loved the collaboration between us to make this bag come true for both of us. 

  • Venice Wanderlust Panel by Hoffman
  • 100% cotton fabrics
  • Fleece interfacing
  • Inside is Venice by Robert Kaufman
  • Purse clam frame

Venice purse or bag one side

Venice purse or bag other side with pocket

I had to cut the panel to fit the size she wanted. It became somewhat of a puzzle to figure out where exactly to cut it and still have the charm of the panel come through on both sides.

Venice purse or bag other side with pocket

Pocket with magnetic snap in it

The front has a magnetic clasp pocket. You can see my hand showing this. 

Inside has a zipper pocket and a slip in pocket with two sizes in it.

Inside there is another Venice print from Robert Kaufman. A very different print but the colors go beautifully. 

Batik side of bag or purse

This is a batik print that went beautifully with all the teal colors of the purse.

The original bag that started the Venice bags

This is my original bag that is very large showing the panel middle where I could show off the whole of Venice here. I have started a smaller one of this style. It will be up for sale on my Etsy store after I finish it. 

If you have other ideas on how to make one of these I would love to here about it in the comments below. If you also would love to have a custom bag out of this panel please comment below. I would be happy to get back to you.
