This hand-carried tote bag converts easily to a foldover bag with shoulder strap for a casual look. Lots of opportunity to mix and match fabrics and materials.

Description

Let me introduce you to Megan. I think at 11″ wide x 13″ tall x 4″ deep she’s a perfect everyday tote. Not too enormous, but definitely large enough for all the necessities with a bit of room to spare.
 
Plus, I really love the big zipper pocket on the outside. It’s perfect to keep your keys and phone in, and actually be able to find them when needed quickly.

The two sets of D-rings and removable handle make it easy to carry it either as a full sized tote bag or a smaller, foldover tote. The choice is completely yours.

Megan Foldover Tote Bag features:
exterior zipper pocket
interior slip pocket
can be worn either as a tote bag or foldover tote
magnetic snap closure

Sizing info:
11” wide x 13” tall x 4” deep
