Pattern Description:

FEATURES:
The Matilda Dance Tote features a shaped base and is perfect for popping all of your dancing needs into when you head off to your dancing session! Apart from the roomy interior for your leotards and more, it has two interior elastic pockets, perfect for your dancing shoes and a drink bottle plus two interior slip pockets for hair bands, stockings or other little dance necessities.

With the pattern provided in TWO sizes, you can make one for your little ballerina or your teenage hip hopper or of course, for YOU!

Of course the dance tote isn't limited to just dancing! It also makes a great beach bag, overnight bag or even a great book bag! I am sure you can find lots of other fabulous uses too!

PLUS as an added extra, included with your tote pattern are instructions on how to make a Faux Leather Handbag from the same pattern with just a few simple adjustments and the addition of some grommets!
==================================

The pattern comes ready to print out on standard A4 paper OR you can also print on Letter or Foolscape simply by checkling the "Disable shrink to fit" or similar in your printers settings. Printing Instructions are included!

The pdf pattern for Matilda has 25 pages of instructions which include 47 step by step colour photos. There are 4 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to check scale. 5 Pattern pieces are included. PLUS a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (5 pages for the Tote, plus an extra 3 for the Faux leather Handbag) comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

PLUS as an added BONUS, included with your tote pattern are instructions on how to make a Faux Leather Handbag from the same pattern with just a few simple adjustments and the addition of some grommets!

ALL my patterns have measurements for both Metric and Imperial and seam allowances are included!
