This pretty tote is perfect for every lady who appreciates carrying a stylish bag with lots of pockets to hold her essentials!


These very easy instructions are great for those with at least basic sewing skills. It has two exterior pocket topped with elastic casings to keep your favorite items secure yet easy to reach. There are also instructions for two different types of interior pockets - a simple patch pocket or a hidden zipper pocket for more advanced sew-ers.

Finished dimensions are 10" tall x 15" wide x 2 1/2" deep. (If you like this design but want a bigger bag, search this shop for the Satchel XL.) A pattern piece for the side pocket is included; cutting instructions are included for the rest of the pieces, which are all easy rectangles.

½ yard exterior focus fabric
5/8 yard coordinating fabric for exterior pockets
1 ¼ yard coordinating fabric for lining, straps and bottom
1 ¼ yards fusible fleece interfacing (I like Pellon brand 987F)
1 package 5/8” wide elastic
1 button measuring between 1 ¼” to 2” (a button with a shank will work best for this project)
disappearing ink pen
1 safety pin (to pull the elastic through the casing)
12” zipper (optional – if making the zipper pocket)


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. Check my feedback for actual customer comments on the ease of use of my patterns!
