This is the Miranda Tote Bag pdf sewing pattern from the designer Made By Syaza.
The Miranda makes a great everyday purse. It’s just the right size, has all the right features and pockets, yet is fairly light on hardware so won’t break the bank to sew. Use your favorite cotton prints for a splash of color, then accent with cork or vinyl for straps, the hardwearing base and the feature binding around the top.
A recessed zipper closure on top keeps everything safe inside, where you’ll find options for a lining slip pocket and a zipper pocket. The removable shoulder strap is optional.

Great pattern! Looks super sleek and designer! Easy to sew and a great beginners bag project (that looks like a hard bag pattern). Also a great way to start using binding. Bonus – this pattern doesn’t involve birthing! Highly recommendJulia on Etsy
This is a Basic Pattern. It is also my favorite finished product. The pattern is fairly easy to understand if you’ve already read through a few others. But the finished Bag it produces is just perfect! Love this Pattern!Amy on Etsy
