We love this designer, Merge Bags, she makes fabulous bags with very detailed step by step instructions. This is her Carry-all Tote which is a great zippered-top tote bag purse for shopping, travel, or just makes a great everyday bag to carry.

With all the pockets that have been added to the Carry-all Tote Bag, you’ll have plenty of places to organize all your things.

The Carry-all Tote Bag has the following features:

  • A 14” top zippered opening.
  • The three outside pockets will keep your phone, keys, and other important items within easy reach.
  • A fully lined tote interior.
  • Inside you have four large slip pockets plus one large zippered pocket for security.
  • 1″ wide shoulder straps mean your bag can be carried comfortably on your shoulder.
  • Two different hand strap options – with or without decorative piping.
  • With sturdy construction and interfacing, the tote bag stands on its own.
