  • Basic sewing skills

Pattern Description:

Here's a great way to showcase your handiwork! Machine embroidery, applique and patchwork designs are perfect embellishments for the gusseted pockets on the outside of this roomy tote.

Two inner zipped pockets, one large enough to hold a book or papers, make it easy to keep things organized and safe inside.

Load up your finished carryall to take to quilting or sewing class or to tote treasures home from a garden tour or a whirlwind trip to the fabric stores in your area.

Customize the design on the gusseted pockets to suit the user-music notes and symbols for a music lover or embroidered flowers for a gardener! You get the idea-be creative!
