The Vekza is my first pattern to include binding. Why? Because binding is the perfect way to get gorgeous curves on the exterior of your bag. Someone described it to me as acting like a skeleton to provide the bag with good structure. It's a great new skill to learn so don't be put off if it's your first time. This sophisticated bowler bag features a curved front zip pocket and inside it has a zip and slip pocket. It has rolled handles and a lovely shape. Overall the pattern isn't too complex, you just need to take your time and follow the tips to getting a great curve on that front zip pocket - that's what makes in an intermediate pattern.
