This pretty tote bag has feminine ruffles you'll love, but lots of practical features too! Organize yourself with the large front pocket and a large divided pocket inside. It has an easy-to install magnetic snap closure to keep contents secure. It makes a great purse or activity tote, but it's just the right size to carry standard sized laptops, too! ?

Pattern pieces for the sides and snap flap are included; cutting instructions are included for the rest of the pieces, which are all easy rectangles. ?

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 firstname.lastname@example.org to help you. Check my feedback for actual customer comments on the ease of use of my patterns! ?
