Inspired by a bygone era, the Eleanor handbag’s beauty is in its simple design. Although the bag has a classic feel, you can produce a modern feel by using solids or use different prints for each piece (or just a few), or a unique bag by creating your pieces using a quilt-as-you-go method to use up lots of little fabric scraps.
