The Quilted Carryall Tote Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing and quilting skills

Pattern Description:

Make this versatile tote for shopping, travel, or everyday errands. The roomy tote in two sizes includes directions for using already-quilted double-sided fabric as well as directions for substituting quilted fabric you make yourself with your favorite fabrics.

The tote features a separating zipper in the top panel, which you can unzip completely so the panel drops down inside the tote. Pockets on the outside are sized to keep items you need at your fingertips. Inside pockets on all four sides offer lots of places to store and organize your belongings. The pattern also includes a double-layer, coordinating eyeglasses case.

The optional attached coin purse for a secure place inside to stash your valuables.

Note: On 4.12.13, I have posted a new PDF. The only change is a typo on page 9. If you've already downloaded and printed the pattern, you need only print and replace page 9. Nothing else has changed.
