The Harlow Small Conceal Carry Handbag with its simple and classic lines, is functional, and perfectly sized.  Don’t, however, let her small measurements fool you.  She may be small, but spacious enough to fit all of your favorite essentials.   With its versatile design, Harlow can be dressed up or down, and best of all, we leave that up to your creative imagination.   You can choose to eliminate or convert the hidden CC Velcro pocket and place it in front or back.  Convenient interior and exterior pockets keep everything organized.  And, a top zipper closure keeps essentials secure.  An adjustable and detachable crossbody strap can be added for hands-free ease.

The instructions in this pattern are written for Fabric, Vinyl, and Cork.  Fabric can be used on the exterior body of the bag and the crossbody strap.
The rolled handles, strap connectors, zipper overlay, and trim require vinyl or cork, as raw edges are exposed and may require edge paint.
