The Harmony Handbag
“I saw the bag at the International Quilt Market in Houston and knew I had to make it,” design director Nancy Wiles says. “I grew up sewing my own garments, and I love the challenge and results from nicely tailored, finely detailed sewing. This bag has great details—contrasting-color pleats and ties as well as a fun, feminine shape. There are lots of pockets including a little pocket to hold beverages inside.”
