Dimensions : W 25 cm x H 19 cm (16 cm useful) x D 6 cm. [W 9 7/8″ x H 7 1/2″(6 1/4″ useful) x D 2 3/8″]

  • Fabric : Bellissimo vinyl in cherry color (be careful, this vinyl is thick !).
  • Contrast fabric : Liberty Mitsi cotton in bordeaux and teal for the bag front, with 2 layers of Vlieseline/Vilene G700. I also used the Liberty for the Two-tone strap (with 1 layer of G700).
  • Lining : “Apolline” red cotton.
  • Flexible foam on the bottom only, as per pattern instructions.

My phone (15 cm x 7 cm [6″ x 2 3/4″] – Samsung Galaxy S10) fits in the smallest outer pocket (and therefore also in the large outer pockets on the front and back).
