Pattern Description:

You will need to purchase my Magic Tuck Market Tote pattern, available in my Craftsy pattern store to make this eco-friendly tote with embroidered pockets. The fully illustrated directions (actual photos of the process) show how to embroider the outer pocket and then bind and line it with a single piece of fabric. This is a great tote for shopping and makes a great gift for those who want to help keep our planet green!
