Titania Tote Bag with Wristlet sewing pattern (2 sizes)

All posts may contain affiliate links.

The Titania tote reminds me of a classic style beach bag, with the narrow bottom, flared & wide opening with long handle straps that feature O-rings that help conform to your shoulder to make it more comfortable to carry.

Mind you this bag is the perfect bag for more than just a day at the beach. The wide opening with the security of a sipper closure will allow you to carry a variety of items and know they are safe. Perfect for a picnic in the park, to bring to an outdoor music festival, and more.

This bag also features a welt pocket on the front for ease of access for your phone, keys, or other essentials, and the interior features a larger zipper pocket along with a snap-in/out two zip pouch that gives you two more interior pockets or can easily be removed and used as a wristlet with the detachable wrist strap.

The pattern includes two sizes for the tote:

  • The perfect Handbag (Small) Measures: 9″ Tall, 7 1/2″ wide (at the bottom) / 14″ wide (at the top), and 4″ deep.
  • An Everyday Tote Size (Large) Measures: 11″ Tall, 8 1/2″ wide (at the bottom) / 17″ wide (at the top), and 5″ deep
