This is a shoulder handbag with a wraparound "belt". The "belt" has a magnetic clasp allowing it to be undone, but not removed making it easier to gain access to the inside of the purse. A variety of materials can be used to make this project, canvas, wool, leatherette, vinyl or any heavy duty fabric. These handbags are very classy and can be dressed up or down and can hold a lot. There are two pockets on the inside, one specially designed to hold a cell phone.
