Lomexa Handbag – PDF Sewing Pattern

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. There are additional instructions if you’d like to make an all fabric version with foam stabiliser instead. 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.

    Great bag. Easy to follow directions and video.

    This pattern is very well detailed- lots of pieces which was a bit overwhelming at first but when I taped it altogether I pretty much got the gist of what all the pieces were. The pattern pieces were clearly labeled & explained what they were for etc. I haven’t sewn it up yet but judging by the detailed instructions & the video I think it will go nicely together.
