Pattern Description:

Make this versatile tote for shopping, travel, or everyday errands. It's suitable for toting your quilting or sewing supplies to class or use it for a diaper bag. It's made from already-quilted, double-layer fabric for a finished tote, inside and out. Directions for quilting your own fabric for the tote are also included in the pattern directions.

Pattern includes directions for two sizes, plus a double-layer coordinating eyeglasses case.

The tote features a separating zipper in the top panel, which you can unzip completely so the panel drops down inside the tote. Pockets on the outside are sized to keep items you need at your fingertips. Inside pockets on all four sides offer lots of places to store and organize your belongings.

An optional swivel hook inside is a great place to connect your keys or your eyeglasses case.
