The Nora Doctor Bag

Some time ago I bought The Nora Doctor Bag Pattern from Swoon Patterns. I fell in love with the fabric combination they used in the Smaller version of the pattern. So I got the same main fabric and made the medium version with it. The pattern has three size options: small handbag, large handbag and traveler


I just love the unusual combination of gray and brown. It looks so chic!

So this is a doctor style bag but without the metal frame. It closes with a small flap and a twist lock.
This past week I made a second one with a print from the new Denim Studio Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics.


The interior construction of this bag is very interesting. The combination of interfacings results in a sturdy and nice shape bag. Look at it. My peltex is not fusible so I held it in place with some SF101 scraps.


A look from the top:


This is how it looks open.


 Some bag feet for a professional look.
