These very easy instructions are great for those with basic sewing skills. I've even provided 22 full-color photos to illustrate the simple step-by-step instructions. These instructions tell you how to make this bag in four versatile sizes! I have included instructions for use with a rotary cutter, or you can make a pattern easily using poster board or pattern paper; all the pieces are easy to measure rectangles.

The Aivilo Tote features several interior and exterior pockets to hold all of your important items! The bottom section on the outside make easily accessible pockets. The interior is fully lined in a coordinating fabric. Interior pockets are great for holding your cell phone, a spare pen (don't you hate it when you can't find a pen?), and your wallet - or whatever else you choose to store! Pocket placement is fully customizable - you decide how many pockets you want, and what size to make them! You can even add an extra row of pockets if you prefer. A magnetic closure is a convenient way to keep contents secure. If you prefer a zipper closure, instructions are included on how to insert a zipper too!

The original (medium size) Aivilo Pocket Tote is approximately 13" wide x 9.5" tall x 4" deep and works wonderfully as a purse or small carry-all - it even works as a great, stylish small diaper bag! Other sizes are small (11" wide x 7.5" tall x 4" deep), large (15" wide x 11.5" tall x 4" deep) and extra large (17" wide x 11.5" tall x 4" deep).
