Sewing Pattern – Valerie Bag
Valerie is a very feminine handbag with its soft curves and great capacity, customizable thanks to its multiple inserts.
This handbag has a large central compartment, with an exterior patch pocket and a separating zipped pocket inside. It closes with a recessed zip and an optional magnetic tab that secures the patch pocket. Two handles allow it to be carried by hand or on the shoulder, and a removable adjustable shoulder strap allows it to be worn on the shoulder or across the bust. The pattern is offered to you with instructions for making it with or without tab.
35 cm wide, 25 cm high and 8 cm thick
