Description

The Valora Bag is a classy-shaped bag that comes in two sizes!

The designer wanted a small bag to carry her essentials but wanted something more unique than any pattern she could find. This bag is intended to be made with vinyl for the exterior and waterproof canvas for the lining, so it requires little interfacing. However, below are interfacing recommendations if you prefer to use cotton for exterior and/or lining fabrics.

This bag can also be made with little to no hardware or of course with tons of extras for fun! A very versatile and adaptable purse pattern.

Lauren has produced three video tutorials, which you can view by clicking on the play buttons below.
