The Vordenza is a cute little crossbody designed to be the perfect everyday bag, with room to fit your wallet, sunglasses, keys & phone. It features an interior slip pocket as well as 4 card slots and 2 exterior zip pockets. The pattern has two size options. The large size is just the right size to fit a standard iPad/tablet in as well as your other essentials, and the small will fit an iPad mini.
The black & brown bag featured in the photos is the large size and the purple and grey is the small. Both bags shown were made on a domestic sewing machine.
There is no binding used in any of my patterns.
Large: 8″ tall x 10.5″ wide x 1.5″ deep
Small: 7″ tall x 9.5″ wide x 1.5″ deep
It’s an intermediate pattern and includes an 18 page step by step pattern with photos as well as a printable pattern pieces in both A4 and “letter” paper sizes (in separate files).
There are no raw edges in the pattern so you can use cotton, cork or vinyl, provided your machine can manage it. There is a neat zipper panel closure on top and it has an adjustable crossbody strap. The pattern requires very little hardware, just 24″ of size 5 continuous zip, 3 zip pulls, 1 x 1″ slider and 2 x 1″ rectangle rings. You can add rivets if you like, but they’re not essential. (If you prefer to use standard zips, you’ll need 2 x 10″ and 1 x 15″).
Other materials required for construction include:
Exterior fabric (brown cork in the photo): 15″ x 15″
