If you want to make yourself a great tote bag for a perfect day at the beach, vacation, or a day of shopping, then check out the Tori Tote Bag sewing pattern. Just check out those wonderful handles; super strong, comfortable to carry, and easy to sew.
The “Tori” makes a big tote bag, which is easy to make even for a beginner sewer, due to its simple design. It’s an easy bag to sew with a seriously professional look.
This bag is designed with an inside size adjuster with clips that allow you to reduce the bag’s top width. Left undone and you have a larger tote bag, cinch it up for when you have less to carry, for a more slimline look. It has a magnetic snap closure together with strong handles.
The bottom of the bag has a removable insert that gives a firm base for strength. We love a firm bottom! It really gives the bag a nice shape when you carry it, and stops the bag from looking saggy. This can be removed so the bag folds flat when not in use. So handy for storage.
The Tori is a fully lined bag with an inside zippered pocket, wall, and smartphone pockets. There are nine pockets in total on the inside, details as follows:
- Four 6″ by 6″ slip pockets,
- Four 3″ by 6″ slip pockets,
- One 7″ by 5″ zippered pocket.
With all of those fabulous pockets, the Tori can also work perfectly as a great diaper bag.
When you have finished making your Tori Tote Bag it will measure approximately 18″ wide at the top, 12″ high, and 6″ deep. The shoulder straps will be 24″ in length by 1½” wide.
