Classic Market Tote Bag sewing pattern (2 sizes)

This is the Classic Market Tote Bag pdf sewing pattern from the designer Andrie Designs.

The designer says her Classic Market Tote comes in two sizes and has been created to give you a practical market tote, perfect for not only trips to the market but almost anything else you need a tote bag for as well, all the while still having that ‘wow’ factor.

This simple yet eye-catching tote bag features two outer slip pockets, a generously sized main compartment complete with a key hook, and an inner zipper pocket. It also includes a simple magnetic snap closure, gorgeous O-rings, and straightforward construction techniques.

This is the third pattern in the Andrie Designs Classic Collection – an ongoing collection of patterns designed to be simple and quick to construct, yet effective and classic in design. They are patterns designed for all types of makers, whether you make to sell or simply sew for pleasure.

The designer says that if you are wary of zippers, then you don’t need to be as throughout the pattern she gives detailed and comprehensive instructions and diagrams to make adding the zipper an easy and stress-free experience.
