The SOPHIA SATCHEL measures 10½” W x 8” H x 4½” D and is a Classic Handbag style with a touch of elegance. This Handbag not only reflects high end styling, but it also offers two styles of handle options. The first handle option is a unique 6 strand braided design, while the other is a simple chain with woven leather or vinyl within its links. A flip lock or turn lock secures a Flap that has a small contrast piping for that finished detail. The handles are attached to gate rings which are secured to grommets at the top of the Flap. The gate rings also provide a place to connect your removable crossbody strap so that you can carry your bag “hands free”. The interior has a double section to help keep items organized and in place as well as a zippered pocket and two slip pockets. This double interior also allows the handbag to cinch in without the use of side snaps.
This classic A-line design and unique top strap option will have people asking where they can buy such a fabulous bag!!!
The instructions in this pattern are written for leather and vinyl, however fabric could be used on the Body and Flap of this bag , but the handle and crossbody strap will require vinyl or leather due to the raw edges.

How to choose the correct vinyl for this bag
When choosing a vinyl use one that has a bit more body or a little stiffer to help the bag stay upright. Foam is used in this bag for support as well, however If you use a softer feel vinyl then it is recommended you use a closed cell foam to give it the required structure. ALWAYS test your vinyl to establish the proper heat setting when pressing. Never iron from the right side, always iron from the wrong side.
How to choose the correct leather for this bag
You should choose leather that is at least 2 - 3.5 oz and has more body or a little stiffer feel. Bear in mind that if you are using leather that is more than 2 oz, then you may require skiving the Exterior pieces as shown on the skiving page. If you use a softer feel leather then it is recommended to use a closed cell foam to give it the required structure. The crossbody strap should be closer to the 2 oz
thickness, as there are multiple layers and it will be easier to sew. If not you will need to skive these pieces.
If you have an industrial machine, then you may be able to sew 2 oz leather that will not require any skiving. Choose your leather based on your machines capability, and the finished look that you want to achieve.
Helpful leather guide: 2 - 3 oz = 1/32”- 3/64” OR .8mm - 1.2mm thick.
