The Valora Bag is a classy-shaped bag that comes in two sizes and includes three video sewing tutorials. Valora works well in all fabrics.
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, there 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.
