Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to use sewing machine

Pattern Description:

This is a great tote bag large enough to fit all you need.
Features:
*One main compartment interior lined with cotton and taffeta in brown.
*One red pocket inside.
*Closes with a magnetic snap.
*An embroidered floral accent is added as a final touch on the front side.

This original design allows mixing fabrics and colors so
you can achieve a more formal or extravagant look.

For the beige tote I(tm)ve chosen coordinating patterns of a
tapestry fabric. I used floral one for the upper part of the
body of the bag and striped one for the bottom part and
the handle. Lining in beige.
Most of the contemporary fabrics come in collections
combining solid color, stripe and floral versions of one
and the same material. This way your options are
unlimited and your quality and professional looking
result is guaranteed because all the parts of your bag
will fit perfectly in color and thickness.

For the green tote I(tm)ve chosen to merge the upper and
bottom parts of the exterior pattern. This way I had
enough space for decoration. I added free flowing pin
tuck lines all around the bag and a floral print on the
front side. I used here two fabrics - green linen and
black lining.

The present tutorial follows the sewing of the tote in
raspberry red and dark chocolate brown. The large size
of the bag and the fact that both fabrics were in solid
colors allowed me to add decoration again - simple
embroidered floral accent on the front side. Lining in
brown.
