Pattern Description:

The Smile and Wave Tote is both good-looking and user friendly. The Large tote is roomy enough to carry everything you'll need for a day of surf and sun. It's got a wide open top with sturdy shoulder straps. Inside there's three slip pockets for easy access plus one zippered pocket to hold keys or money. The two roomy outer pockets each have a magnetic snap closure. The Small tote includes all of the same great details and is perfect to tote your personal items.

My printable PDF instructions include color photographs, detailed diagrams, glossary and all the assembly directions you'll need to make the Large and Small Smile and Wave Tote.
