Adding some pleating to a Tote Bag really gives it some character. Here is a FREE pattern and tutorial for a simple pleated tote purse. This is a great simple starter bag pattern. Sew it as-is, or add in your own extras and options such as an adjustable shoulder strap, pockets, a magnetic snap closure. Size it up and use it as a really big grocery tote or a beach bag or for carrying around all the stuff for the kids. Or size it down and make it as a cute purse for a little girl.
