This is the Briella Commuter Tote (Work/Multi PurposeBag) pdf sewing pattern from the designer RLR Creations Sewing.

Briella is designed to carry all your essentials in a well-organized bag with lots of style.

The designer says while the Briella Tote was designed as a commuter/work bag it’s an ideal all purpose bag. It makes a great teacher bag, school bag, leisure bag, or travel bag. In the office or on the go shopping, you can use it as a small baby bag and so much more.

You can grab your Briella and go with two top handles or carry on your shoulder with the adjustable carry strap.

The designer says her Briella Commuter Tote Bag is all about keeping you organized with pockets everywhere.

Briella has the following pockets:-

  • A large exterior front pocket with a slip pocket inside for your phone and pens.
  • An exterior Back Pocket, big enough to hold a tablet.
  • Two large slip pockets on either side of the exterior. Secured with magnetic snaps and large enough for file folders, magazines, a notebook, or manila envelopes.
  • Two exterior side pockets either elastic or slip.
  • Two unique gusseted interior zipper pockets to offer plenty of room to store bulky items.
  • Two interior slip pockets.
