Pattern Description:

The Toadstool Tote PDF Pattern is the first in a planned series of Woodland Satchels from Azure Rocket Design Studio - bags and totes inspired by forest flora and fauna.

The pattern is an exploration of geometry in a delightful motif: the bright red toadstool that plays an ubiquitous role in forest folklore. Unique in both construction and appearance, it is appropriate for children and adults alike as whimsy need not have an age limit.

This soft tote is the perfect size to hide away a selection of toys, art supplies, or anything you fancy having along just in case of fun. Stiff interfacing and fusible fleece give the lined tote enough structure to retain its shape and give it strength, but as a soft, hollow structure, it both is lightweight for carrying and satisfyingly squishy.

The 14-page pattern comes complete with an 8-page photo-guided tutorial for completing the project and would be perfect for anyone from an advancing beginner to a more seasoned sewist.
