Pattern Description:

The STOW IT ALL is the perfect sized tote for a day out shopping, with plenty of pockets to keep you organised while you shop! This spacious tote features 5 exterior slip pockets, 1 exterior twist lock pocket, a recessed zipper closure, an interior zipper pocket, 2 slip pockets and a pen pocket. Of course the addition of a twist lock, rivets (optional), bag feet, rings and cute hooks on the straps makes this tote look so professional!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 41cm W X 31cm H X 11.5cm D. (16" W X 12" H x 41/2" D.)

Materials:

  • Exterior solid fabric: 20cm (20") of 112cm (44") wide fabric
  • Exterior patterned fabric: 70cm (28") of 112cm (44") wide fabric
  • Lining fabric: 1m (40") of 112cm (44") wide fabric
  • Fusible woven interfacing: mid-weight, 150cm (60") of 112cm (44") wide interfacing [Pellon Shape-Flex SF101 is a good choice - 3m (4 yards)]
  • Fusible non-woven interfacing: mid-weight, 40cm (16") of 112cm (44") wide interfacing [Pellon 931TD is a good choice - 90cm (1 yard)]
  • ByAnnie's Soft & Stable: 91.5cm X 33cm (36" X 13"), or substitute with Headliner Foam and a heavy weight interfacing for the exterior (you can also use fusible fleece, however, you will end up with a bag that is substantially more floppy)

  • Matching thread (I use Gutermann Polyester)

  • Small amount of fray stopper and craft glue for setting twist lock (optional BUT makes the job more professional - I use Gutermann HT2)
