This is the Parisian Street Tote Bag pdf pattern from the designer RLR Creations Sewing. This is actually Version Two which now includes two sizes!
The traditional small size is still the popular size and style as it has always been making it the perfect everyday tote with pockets a-plenty for organizing all of your necessities. It carries like a purse with a pretty profile.
The new larger size is created to be the perfect size tote for commuting to the office, on a business trip, or on a day out and about shopping. It offers more room than the original small size but is not too big so that still carries comfortably on the shoulder.
This Tote Bag is very comfortable to carry with its dropped yoke and double shoulder straps. The two wrap-around side pockets make this bag perfect for keeping the essentials at hand.
There’s also a front slip and zip pocket to keep your phone, small tablet, keys, and other essentials convenient and secure.
The interior is lined and features a large back slip pocket along with a newly added zipper pocket for even more places to organize your daily items. The Magnetic snap closure keeps everything neatly inside.
Skill level: Despite all of the features, the designer describes the best part of this Parisian Street Tote Bag is that it’s easy and quick to sew, doesn’t require a lot of materials, and has no hardware other than a magnetic snap. With it being easy and quick to sew it’s a great pattern for beginner sewers or those that enjoy a quick sew, or items to sew and sell.
