The bag can be worn as a belt bag, shoulder bag or as a clutch.

In order to combine two current trends, we sew our bag from imitation leather, a material that is increasingly being used in sewing machines. Sentences like “Does the machine do this?” or “Doesn’t it leave out stitches? With a few tips, the right presser foot and a suitable sewing needle, sewing (artificial) leather is easy.

7 sewing tips for imitation leather

  1. Leather needles cause holes that are too large, it is better to use normal needles or jeans needles.
  2. The optimum stitch length is 3 – 3.5 mm.
  3. A Tefon foot sticks less and transports (artificial) leather a lot easier. Alternatively, baking paper can be placed under the leather when sewing.
  4. The thicker the material, the higher the upper thread tension must be.
  5. Iron artificial leather only to the left, at a low temperature and with an intermediate underlay. Alternatively, heavy weights can be used to flatten the leather.
  6. Since the edges of the fabric do not fray, artificial leather can be processed with open edges.
  7. Certain artificial leather is allowed in the washing machine. However, only at 30° C wool cycle, with a mild detergent and without spinning. Many stains can be removed with a cloth and water or leather spray.

 

Advantages of imitation leather

• a composite of a fabric (natural, chemical or mixed fabric) and a plastic top layer (PVC, PES)
• impervious to dirt, water and sun
• extremely tearproof
• very inexpensive compared to genuine leather
• very lightweight

Oval bag

We recommend that you first draw the half shape of the 16 cm high and 25 cm wide oval bag and then mirror it so that all curves are the same. The 2 cm wide loops are each 6 cm from the centre of the bag. The zipper of the bag is 24 cm long. The lining has a 14 cm wide pocket, also with zipper. All other measurements can be taken from the drawing.

Central strip

There is an upper and a lower 5 cm wide central strip, both are connected at the sides. Measure the circumference of the oval pocket and divide by two. Mark the position of the 24 cm long zipper in the middle of the upper central strip, as well as the visible width of the zipper (here: 0.75 cm). Both stripes receive a passport cut in the middle.

Belt

Draw a strip with the length of the waist circumference and a width of 3 cm. An extra loosening can be added, but the closer with thorn already offers some leeway. Add a distance of the individual holes (here: 4 x 2.5 cm) plus 8 cm end part to one end and 4 cm overlap for the closer to the other end. The belt is 3 x 3 cm wide.

Belt loop

Draw the belt loop with a finished width of 2 cm and a finished length of 5 cm and mirror 2 x to the side.

Flap

The flap is given a finished length of 2 cm and width of 2.5 cm and is also mirrored 2 x to the side. For the make-up, then mirror 1x on top.

Finished Pattern Pieces

Specify all yarn widths, breaks and notches. The pattern pieces are shown with seam allowance.

Cutting and preparation

With a thickness of 625 g/qm the leather imitation is already quite stable, for an even better stand the oval pattern pieces and the intermediate strips are fixed with a firmer insert. We strongly recommend to carry out an ironing test (incl. ironing cloth) beforehand. This artificial leather can be ironed for 6 seconds without melting or shrinking. Let the artificial leather cool down well afterwards. The cuts of the lining on the upper intermediate band and the oval pocket should be covered with a thin insert.
