Here’s the Goin’ Uptown Tote Bag which you can make if you download the PDF sewing pattern. The Goin’ Uptown Tote features lots and lots of zippers. It has an outer zipper pocket on both the front and back, giving you quick and easy access to frequently used items such as your mobile phone and keys. It also has a recessed zipper at the top of the bag to close and an inner zipper pocket also for added storage.
This bag will perfectly show off your favourite fabrics, and the added piping around the sides and top of the bag will make you the talk of the town!
You can also make this bag as a fantastic diaper/nappy bag holding all the necessities that you will need for your baby.
The Goin’ Uptown Tote Bag is suitable for an advanced beginner-intermediate sewer, with a finished size that is 15″ wide (at the base) by 11″ high by 4″ deep (at the base).
