How to Sew A Tote Bag With Many Pockets - FREE sewing pattern

This simple Tote Bag is an absolute beauty, is still simple to sew and yet has multiple handy pockets.  As a bonus, the designer has made the pattern FREE.

This Tote Bag is just the right size for a purse, plus you can carry items that you want to keep organized and grab quickly in the six exterior pockets. Other features include a button and loop closure, and D-rings with swivel snap clips to attach the strap. If you want, you could skip the clips and sew your straps directly to the D-rings. The boxy bottom of the bag and the interfacing that the designer used in most of the pieces give it great structure.

The finished tote is approximately 12” tall by 12′ wide and 3” across the bottom. The lower pockets are 5” deep, the top pocket is 8 1/2” deep, and there are optional pockets on the inside too.
