Vordenza Crossbody Bag pattern

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 four card slots and two exterior zip pockets. We love the jaunty angle of that outside zipper pocket.

There is a neat zipper panel closure on top and it has an adjustable crossbody strap. The designer doesn’t use binding in any of her patterns.

Two sizes in the same pattern:
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, while the small size will fit an iPad mini.

Video tutorial included:
The designer has included a full video step-by-step tutorial with the pattern. This includes a short introduction to the pattern so you can check out the size of the bag.

Sizing info:
When you have finished making a Vordenza Crossbody Bag it will measure approximately:-

  • Large = 8″ tall by 10.5″ wide by 1.5″ deep.
  • Small = 7″ tall by 9.5″ wide by 1.5″ deep.

Pick your fabrics:
This awesome project is suitable for a wide range of fabrics. There are no raw edges in the pattern so as well as all of the usual fabrics such as cotton, denim and canvas etc., you can also use cork or vinyl, provided your machine can manage it.
