We’ve found another FREE pdf pattern which we think you will love, it’s called the Alice Shopper Tote from Swoon patterns. Alice is ideal to carry as an every day purse if you need a bit more room. Her easy tote bag style is casual, roomy but still stylish enough to carry to work.
As a bonus you’ll be able to stop off at the market or store on the way home and grab a few things without needing a second bag. Or take Alice to the farmers market and they’ll be plenty of room for all of your fresh produce – she makes a great high-end grocery tote bag to sew.
Alice is an easy-to-sew large tote bag featuring an exterior open pocket with magnetic snap, with a unique shape that lets a bit of contrasting fabric peek out of the bag. There is also a simple patch pocket inside and the straps are long enough for you to carry Alice over your shoulder.
Alice is aimed at the beginner sewer and
her approximate final size is 17″ wide by 14″ tall by 5″ deep.
What you will need to make the Alice Shopper Tote:-
- 1/2 a yard of 44” wide woven quilting cotton exterior fabric,
- 2/3 of a yard of 44” wide quilting cotton or a vinyl contrasting fabric,
- 1-yard of 44” wide quilting cotton lining fabric,
- 4-yards of fusible woven interfacing (Pellon Shapeflex SF101),
- 2/3 of a yard of fusible fleece,
- 1/8 of a yard of fusible stabilizer (Pellon Peltex 71F),
- One magnetic snap,
- Coordinating thread,
- Fabric glue (we love Fabri-tac) (Optional),
- Basic sewing supplies,
- A sewing machine.
