Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Follow pattern directions
  • Install a zipper (optional)
  • Be willing to learn rope splicing (directions included)

Pattern Description:

This is a nautical style tote bag with wrapped rope handles. The rope tunnels through the bag providing extra structure and modern style!

Though I have styled this as a summer bag, it would be great for hauling sports gear or library books too. This is a big bag with lots of room for all your gear.

The Coastal Tote is fairly simple to sew and only requires basic sewing skills.

There are 3 pocket options. A simple slip pocket can be added across the entire width of the bag on one or both sides. It is divided into three smaller sections where the rope handles cross the pocket.
