A classic tote bag sewing pattern which makes an easy to sew, easy to use everyday tote bag purse, but also acts as the perfect base pattern for adding your own style and pattern variations such as pockets and zippers.
This tote is great for trips to the beach, yoga, school, day trips, overnight stays, and more!
This pattern is great for quick gifts for friends, and last-minute craft fair prep. While great for beginners, more experienced bag makers will enjoy the ample amount of opportunity to implement their own style and design options with zippers or pockets.
This bag has so much potential to be “dressed up.”
