Pattern Description:

This girlie tote is quick and easy to sew! Change out the ribbon for different looks!

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

These frustration-free instructions are great for those with at least basic sewing skills - the project involves some gathering. There are instructions for two different types of interior pockets - a simple patch pocket or a hidden zipper pocket for more advanced sew-ers.

Bag measures 11" wide across the bottom x 11" tall x 5" deep. Cutting instructions are included for all the pieces that are easy to measure rectangles; a printable pattern piece is included for the curved bottom of the bag.

MATERIALS NEEDED:
3/4 yard exterior focus fabric
1/3 yard coordinating fabric for bows *Can also use 2 yards of ribbon
1 yard coordinating fabric for lining, interior pockets and bottoms
1 yard fusible fleece interfacing (I like Pellon brand 987F) at least 40" wide
3/4 yard lightweight fusible interfacing
1 magnetic snap closure
erasable marker or pencil
1 safety pin (to pull the bow fabric through the casing)
12" zipper (optional - if making the zipper pocket)

This pattern is very easy to follow. The added pictures are very helpful. This is the second purse I've made using this pattern. I will definitely be buying more of her patterns :)
