Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing skills

Pattern Description:

Once upon a time I had a desire for a tote bag, but not just a regular old boxed bottom bag. I wanted something a little different. Something with some curves and a few design elements I could play with. Out of that desire the Nanette tote was born! A little more stylish than your average tote, you'll want to use the Nanette tote as an everyday bag! Design features include subtle pleating at the body, soft curves at the sides, and the option of making either a flat or rounded bottom. The split top design allows you ample room to access the contents inside.
