My favorite purse sewing pattern. Easy to make, has some nice features, and can sew it in vinyl/leather or all fabric too. Looks like store bought when it's finished.Here’s another simple purse you can sew with a designer look we think you’ll love to recreate for yourself.  The Valley Tote comes in two sizes and is the perfect every day tote bag to sling over your shoulder. Features include two zippered pockets, a divided slip pocket, and a slick, stylish exterior.  Instructions included to make it both with fabric or vinyl/leather options.

LARGE: 15.5″ wide top, 10.75″ wide bottom X 10″ tall X 4.5″ deep.
