TOUGH TOTE

This pattern duo includes the Tough Tote pattern which maps out the soft bodied ‘classic tote’ design but utilizes durable materials and seam binding construction for a quick-to-sew utilitarian tote that’s made to last and has a lining that doesn’t slip around. It utilizes large body pieces and an extra base layer to ensure longevity. This tote has an open top with key clip and zipper pocket inside for added organization. Utilizing webbing and pre-made binding makes it the pattern you’ll reach for when in need of a weekender, heavy hauler, or gift that is both speedy and sure to please everyone on your list!

• Foldable Body
• Box Corners
• ‘Stay Put’ Lining with Seam Binding Construction
• Interior (unlined) Zipper Pocket

• FINISHED SIZE: 20”L(14” at base) x 5.5”W x 12.75”H

FLAPTASTIC POUCH

The Flaptastic Pouch is all about fun and whimsy with a big splash of practicality. It has a slim profile with a main zippered compartment large enough to carry small essentials. The clear vinyl flap zip pocket (which inspires its name) is bound with double-fold bias fabric and provides a unique way to see and store small items. A slip pocket for flat items sits safely tucked behind the clear pocket. While this pouch’s back snap tabs allow it to be used in four different ways... when paired with the Tough Tote the Flaptastic adds more organization, personalization, and utility! Snap to your tote when on the go, and unsnap it and carry it alone when you only need a clutch.
And with three flap styles to choose from, you can create the perfect look: classic plain, glitter-filled for some extra fun, and animal-face which mixes art and sewing for an adorable novelty look!

FEATURES
• 3 Flap Styles: plain, glitter-filled, & animal-face
• 4 Ways to Wear: clutch, shoulder/crossbody, hip bag / fanny pack / bum bag, & tote add-on
• Clear Front Zip Pocket
• Slip Pocket
• Secure Zippered Main Pocket
• Key Clip
• Adjustable Strap
• FINISHED SIZE: 9”W x 5.5”H
• SKILL LEVEL: Advanced & Adventurous Beginner
• SUPPLIES: see photo for supplies and notions list
• RECOMMENDED FABRICS: quilting weight cotton for exterior and interior fabrics

• RECOMMENDED SKILLS:
-basic sewing skills: you should be familiar with sewing from patterns along with common sewing and general bag-making terms
-zipper and snap installation
-sewing with vinyl
-working with double-fold bias: patterns use pre-made bias binding. While the cut-list includes the size for cutting your own, there are no instructions within the pattern for making your own.


• SPECIAL NOTES:
-I recommend a 16 Gauge Clear Vinyl for the Flaptastic. Otherwise look for a clear vinyl that can bend but wants to hold its shape and doesn’t easily wrinkle.
-Flaptastic animal-face style: check out the included supplemental guide for examples of different mediums to use, but I most recommend acrylic/oil-based paint pens or cut adhesive vinyl if you have a die-cutting machine.

FAQs

First Check individual listings for possible item-specific care. * For most items I recommend spot cleaning with cool soapy water, and let air dry. For heavily soiled bags and pouches you may hand or machine wash (gentle cycle). Pat or roll in dry towel and let air dry. Press using a pressing cloth. * Shipping may also leave items a bit deflated upon arrival, revive items with a nice press with warm iron over a pressing cloth. Be sure not to touch vinyl, faux leather, leather, and plastics as these materials could melt. * I recommend using a fabric protection spray to give items more stain resistance and thus longer life. I use Scotchgard Fabric Protector Spray for this.

For gifts, items are not wrapped any differently and will include the normal receipt. I CAN leave a note for the recipient, just let me know in your order :) I most often mail items in soft poly mailers. If I send a box, be aware that I may use an upcycled box. With all the waste that can occur, if a box is in 'new' condition I may reuse it to ship your item. But don't worry, I hand check each to make sure it is strong and stable for re-use!

I'm sorry, but once a finished item has left my hands I am no longer responsible. As such there are no refunds for items damaged or lost by the mail service. This also includes wrong delivery due to a wrong address given at time of purchase.

Everything is made in a smoke-free, DOG-friendly home. My sewing room is open to my dogs, so be aware if you have a severe allergy.
