- The Genevieve comes with instructions to make 3 versions!
It is super charming with its piped details and loads of pockets OR make it simple and leave out the piping for a quick and easy project!
Choose from two flap shapes!
Complete with an adjustable strap, Genevieve closes with a magnetic snap and has a large slip pocket under the flap along with a smaller slip pocket for your mobile phone.
Two interior slip pockets, a pen pocket and an interior zipper pocket to keep your valuables secure complete the ensemble!
It's a great weekend project that is MUCH easier to complete than it looks!
Optional: Simply add some rivets for a really professional look!
