Pattern Description:

15-page, full color pattern with photographs for each step in construction!

Includes tips for working with laminate! No special sewing machine foot needed!

This tote bag is a great size for use as a diaper bag, a day trip bag, and everything in between. The large bag interior holds a great deal of "stuff", and the long handles allow you to carry the tote over your shoulder with ease.
The exterior split pocket is handy for storing keys, cell phone, children's pacifier, etc. while the optional interior zip pocket offers more secure storage.
Use a laminated cotton for the bag bottom and straps, and clean up is a snap!

The simple design of this tote is very quick to sew up, and a great way to showcase some of your favorite fabrics!
