Pattern Description:

The Magic Tuck Market Tote is a stitch-and-flip, lined-and-quilted, stand-up, fold-flat tote bag!

This tote has a special tuck in the bottom that makes it easy to pack flat in your suitcase or to open out and fill to capacity on shopping trips. It features a zipped inside pocket for security, along with one to hold your glasses or cell phone and outside pocket, too.

Use the easy stitch-and-flip method with strips of your favorite fabrics and the tote is quilted as you assemble it. Or, make it in already-quilted double layer fabric, or in canvas with embellished outer pockets. Directions are included for making the embellished canvas version as shown in the alternate photos (embroidery designs are not included in the pattern).

Directions for the mini version are also included. Make one for your favorite little girl or use it for your paperback book!
