The Nabette Pattern

On Sale
Added to cart

This is the first ‘traditional’ style handbag I have designed. I have long wanted to design a structured bag that uses minimal stabiliser, as I know this can be a time-intensive process as well as an added cost on a project. The bag has been designed to give the structure through carefully placed seams and the piping that wraps around the bag and has been designed to be made with faux leather, vinyl or cork for the outer.

There are 8 cleverly designed pockets including a divider pocket, glasses pocket, 2 zipper pockets, a cup holder and others too! The pieces wrap around the bag, giving it a seamless look on a bag which can be used either in the hands, on the shoulder or using a cross body strap.

Please see below for more technical info…
