The Val Bag pattern was released on Valentine’s day to celebrate the day, It’s a free pattern so I made it as a gift for all my connections who are bag makers. It is a beginner pattern and everyone that has made this pattern agrees to that fact, so you have nothing to worry about in making this pattern even if you are a beginner.
The bag is so simple, with no hardware except for the closure, the strap is fascinatingly attached to the bag. You also don’t need interfacing for this one except you want to use fabric which is completely cool as well.
Finished Size: 8″ W x 6″ H x 3″ D (20cm W x 15cm H x 7½cm D)
- External Fabric or Vinyl – ½ yard
- Quilting Cotton for Lining – ¼ yard
- Bag Twist Lock – 1
- Interfacing – Optional, only if using a fabric.
I truly appreciate all my pattern testers, this pattern would have ended up as an illusion without your help. thank you for making it possible to make sure we released the pattern on Valentines day.
I hope y’all enjoy viewing through what they made and I hope you enjoy making this pattern as much as I and all the testers did.
