The Lomexa is a large everyday handbag, with loads of pockets to keep your valuables organised. This classy pattern features a diagonal front zipper and easy to follow instructions to add the unique O-ring detail. Various options are included. Whichever combination you choose, your Lomexa is sure to become your go-to bag for every occasion.

The standard pattern includes two exterior zip pockets and a slouchy structure. Additional instructions are included for other options including removing the exterior pockets and creating a more structured look. The interior of the bag features 4 slip pockets and a zipper pocket with 12 card slots. The pattern has the option for lots of hardware including strap end caps, rivets, bag feet and a crossbody strap. However, if you want to make a simple version, the only essential piece of hardware is the O-rings for those funky feature handles.

The pattern is written for use with vinyl/cork/leather and Decovil Light. But there are additional instructions if you'd like to make an all fabric version and foam stabiliser. The exterior construction is not suitable for directional prints.

    Absolutely fantastic bag design. The instructions are clear to follow along with the video tutorial. This bag design provides everything you need for your essential items. It is extremely clever in design incorporating elements of a purse combined with bag. I absolutely loved making this bag and it certainly challenged my skills as a beginner bagmaker. Thank you Jo!
