►►►►NOT A FINISHED PRODUCT - This is a PDF pattern ◄◄◄◄

A sewing pattern for you to create a beautiful roomy tote bag with an extra large zipped security pocket inside to hold your wallet and phone securely. Comes with full size pattern pieces for two size options

Skill level: Moderately easy. A quick make for sew to sell, and great for bag beginners.

Comprehensive instructions with full colour photography throughout walks you through every step of make-up to produce a professional quality shoulder bag. Lots of bag making hints and tips included.

Fully lined throughout, the bag has a flat base and the suggested interlinings mean the bag holds its shape beautifully. The bag has a generous security pocket inside made using an easy zip insertion method.

The small version is great for everyday use, it's generous enough to hold an iPad and your every day essentials.
The large version is big enough to accomodate books and files or simply your shopping

Approximate finished dimensions:
Small 12 x 10 inches (31 x 25 cm)
Large 14 x 12.5” (36 x 32cm).

I made this example up in Harris tweed, but it is suitable for most medium to heavy weight fabrics including tweeds, denim and furnishing weight cottons.

14 pages of full colour tutorial style instructions with detailed photos will walk you through making a professional looking tote in no time
