Tutorial for Embroidered Tote Pockets

from Jo-Lydia's Attic

Tutorial for Embroidered Tote Pockets

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing techniques plus familiarity with machine embroidery

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!

This tutorial is available only to my Craftsy customers. Thanks for your patronage. You honor me when you purchase one of my patterns.
