This ebook consists of very detailed sewing instructions and pattern for 2 sizes. It is not just a simple sewing tutorial, but rather structured like "a real book" or even "screenshots of a video + text", with lots of tips and info. Don't be intimidated by the number of pages. There are only so many because everything is very detailed with lots of photos, so even bag newbies can follow along easily. Advanced sewers can just sew by pictures and read up if something is unclear and skip the rest of the pages. Beginners, on the other hand, might miss these pages. So everyone has the chance to sew my patterns.
Difficulty: 1.5 of 5 // Working time: about 1-4 hours
"VARI" is a quick and easy sew. The bag comes in two sizes: The "VARI" clutch measures approx. W 28cm (11") x H 18cm (7") and is perfect for adults as a party or evening bag, or as a chic bridal clutch.
The "VARI" pouch measures approx. W 22cm (8 3/4") x H 13cm (5") and can be used as a pencil case, cosmetics bag or for children for festivities.
Add a second connector and you can carry it as a shoulder bag.
"VARI" comes in a modern, geometric design like "VARO backpack" or "VARA bag". You can choose to have the V-shaped division at the top or bottom of the bag or whether you would like the exterior piece to be a single panel (i.e. without division).
The large clutch is designed to hold everything you need for the wedding day or party night - even a large smartphone fits upright. Add a Mini Mynta wallet, a pack of tissues and some essentials and you're ready to go out. The small pouch also makes a great bag-in-bag.
The bag interior includes a small slip pocket, which can be used for cards (clutch 3 card slots / ouch 2 card slots) or other small items. There is also a zipper pocket inside that doubles as a turning gap.
Both interior pockets are optional, so beginners can decide to omit them and thus achieve a great result even faster.
The instructions include 4 options for a wristlet strap. Either sew your own single- or two-colour strap; or use webbing or a ready-made leather strap for options 3 and 4.

Even as a child I always wanted to look behind things and know how they work. I never wanted to become a teacher or a veterinarian like the other children, but always an inventor. So with the foundation of my label Hansedelli in April 2014 I fulfilled a childhood dream, because as a designer you are somehow an inventor :-)
As Hansedelli I design patterns for bags, purses and co. and create sewing instructions. I attach a lot of importance to detailed instructions and good photos, so that even beginners can follow the instructions. Visit me on Facebook www.facebook.com/hansedelli or on my website www.hansedelli.de
