Why not show off those large personality prints in your stash with this straightforward tote. Simple lines mean the fabric does the hard work for you. A coordinating zip pouch with swivel hook and D ring completes the ensemble. Hang it from the outside or tuck it inside the tote.
Either way, you can keep the necessities handy and look great doing it.
This tote works well to mix and match prints or match a wild and bright print with a coordinating solid. It also allows you to use up smaller pieces of your favorite fabrics you have leftover that may be too small to make a larger bag on their own.
This free tote bag pattern is ideal for beginners.
