This tote is great for an Easter basket and more! I designed it to fit my daughter's Barbie dolls and their clothes and accessories (there is one long interior pocket for clothes, and a divided pocket for shoes and accessories). This tote is also perfect for carrying knitting, crocheting and hand-sewing projects and supplies, plus magazines, patterns and files. It's great in a nursery for diapers and creams.
This pattern contains cutting instructions but no pattern pieces. Your machine (and you!) should be able to handle sewing through thick layers. This is a great pattern for a confident beginner with some sewing experience under her belt, primarily because of the layers - otherwise, all steps are explained and easy enough to follow for a new sewist.
This e-book contains 21 pages and more than 60 photographs that show all the steps for making this tote. There are two handle styles included - center handles for a tote, or side handles for a basket.
I'm a mom of two young girls and a clothing and accessories pattern designer! I love to design useful, beautiful items to wear and use. :) I grew up with a love for art and crafting, and minored in studio art in college so I would keep art in my schedule!
