The Whimsy Bag is a great all-purpose tote. With six large exterior pockets, this bag is ideal for everyday and everything.
The Whimsy is one of our easiest tote projects. Construction is similar to making a placemat, but with pockets and handles. That way all the edges are finished! Then simply fold in half and stitch side seams.
Fabric recommendations: The entire bag is made from just three fabrics. Choose coordinating prints with large, medium, and small size designs. Combine stripes and florals for great impact.
Features: Six exterior pockets, lined interior, and padded handles.
The Whimsy Bag pattern is in PDF format and is 6 pages of cover/instruction. 1 color page, 5 black/white pages. Instructions are black/white illustrations. This is a rotary cut design, no pattern pieces provided.
