Product Overview

This is a PDF Pattern in English available for instant download. See the "HOW TO DOWNLOAD PATTERNS" page for details on how to download your pattern after purchase. Click on the images above to zoom in.


The Vordenza is designed to be the perfect everyday bag, with room to fit your wallet, sunglasses, keys & phone. The pattern includes two size options. The large size is just the right size to fit a standard iPad/tablet as well as some other essentials, and the small will fit an iPad mini.

It features an interior slip pocket as well as 4 card slots and 2 exterior zip pockets.

There are no raw edges in the pattern so you can use cotton, cork or vinyl, provided your machine can manage it. There is a neat zipper panel closure on top and it has an adjustable cross-body strap. There's no binding used in this pattern.

The pink and brown bag featured in the photos is the large size and the purple and grey is the small. Both bags shown were made on a domestic sewing machine.


Options: Two sizes to choose from

Finished size: 8" tall x 10.5" wide x 1.5" deep (large) or 7" tall x 9.5" wide x 1.5" deep (small)

Skill level: Intermediate

    This is the second pattern I have purchased from Jo and once again a well written pattern. Jo makes, life so much easier with her You Tube videos. I have now made two of these bags!
