Vera Slouch Bag in Monstera



I 've been meaning to make myself a bag using Cotton and Steel Monstera canvas for quite some time but every time I tried cutting into it I totally got stuck. I just couldn't commit to any one pattern :(. I think the reason for my "stuckness" was that as much as I love this print, deep down I knew it would be a bit too much for me if I were to make a bag using just this one fabric alone.


And then Aly (@mudandthread on IG) used this print together with a solid fabric to make her Melinda Tote Bag and I suddenly realized that's exactly what I should do too.

I rummaged through my stash and decided to combine the Monstera print with the most fabulous Merchant and Mills Oilskin I purchased a while back. I love this fabric. It's water resistant, sews beautifully, and adds a wonderfully polished look to a finished project.


Such a great combo, what do you think? Leather strap and rivets + hardware don't hurt either, of course :)

I used my Vera Slouch Bag pattern and I'm super, super happy with how it turned out. And, it was such a quick make, too. Every time I make this bag I'm surprised at how quickly it all comes together.


This time though instead of my usual magnetic snap closure (what the pattern calls for) I added a zipper to my bag. It was a bit more work, but totally worth is as the rainy season is here and I felt this way my stuff will be a bit more protected.

You can purchase the pattern here in case you'd like to make a Vera of your own.

Thanks for reading friends. Svetlana
