ABOUT THIS PROJECT: These very easy instructions are great for those with basic to intermediate sewing skills. I've provided 33 full-color photos to illustrate the simple step-by-step instructions. This tote is so cute in both the gathered style and the pleated style - instructions are included for both. The interior pocket section is also customizable to suit your needs. A fabric covered button gives the bag a special custom look - and it's so easy, the button takes about 30 seconds to make! Finished Dimensions are 10 1/2" tall x 16 1/2" wide at bottom x 14 1/2" wide at top x 4" deep. Cutting instructions are included and all pieces are easy rectangles; no printing is necessary. IS THIS SEWING PATTERN REALLY "EASY TO FOLLOW?" Aivilo Charlotte Sewing Patterns are written in everyday English, as if a friend were telling you how to sew, with full color photos illustrating the process step-by-step. Each pattern is tested by a panel of sewists of many skill levels - to ensure the instructions are clear so you can enjoy a frustration-free sewing experience. Plus, if you have any questions while sewing, I'm always available at aivilocharlotte [!at] gmail.com to help you.
