I have a new bag pattern to show you today, I hope you like it as much as I do :)
This is Cora, a beautifully stylish everyday handbag.
Finished size: 12 ½” wide x 11” tall x 4” deep.
I love her classic shape and how super sturdy and roomy she is. Plus, she's not too complicated to make. And, if zippers scare you, you can totally omit the zipper closure and use magnetic snap instead. Or no closure at all. It's totally up to you.
Special features: inset zipper closure, two exterior slip pockets, inner zipper pocket, inner slip pocket.
Materials needed to make Cora:
fabric A (main exterior) – ¾ yard
fabric B (contrasting exterior bottom + straps) – ¾ yard
fabric C (lining) – ¾ yard
SF 101 interfacing (or other medium weight fusible interfacing of choice) – 3 yards
Pellon FF78F1 Flex-Foam (or byAnnie's Soft and Stable) – ¾ yard
one - 7” long metal or nylon zipper
one - 18” long metal or nylon zipper
one – zipper pull (optional)

And, as always, I had help from some amazingly talented ladies who tested my pattern and gave feedback on how to make it better and more user friendly. Thank you, ladies. I greatly appreciate your talent and willingness to share.
Ready to see some...
