Pattern Description:

Looking for the ultimate tote? Then, "Louise's Bag" will certainly fit the bill. Construction is easy, and best of all, the zipper installations are absolutely painless without even needing a zipper foot. The large zipper pockets on the front and back offer security, roomy side pockets are perfect for cell phone, keys, or even a water bottle, and even more compartments inside make organization a snap! Carry the tote "closed" or "open" for even more storage capacity. You will be surprised how very roomy "Louise's Bag" really is.

Our pdf pattern provides detailed instructions which include step-by-step color photos that completely explain the entire construction process. It's just like having your very own private teacher. Experiment with colors and fabrics by mixing and matching to make your own beautiful and unique "Louise's Bag."
