TOTE BAG Free Sewing Pattern

We all love tote bags to carry our amazing range of “non-purse suitable” items. My recent “list” of such items has included items like books, magazines, half finished apples and other treats, children’s ‘found treasures’, sweaters, gloves, school projects, rope, new shower curtain, a range, recyclables, diapers and associated gear,…. Oh, I can’t remember what else. Nor do I need to as now, here is the solution: gorgeous (washable?!) tote bags, leaving our coach bags neat and clean.

Tote Description

I am giving you the description here of the tote bag shown above. However, the pattern for this bag is no longer available. I am linking below to an alternative great bag pattern. You may wish to adjust that pattern to the specs of the b/w bag shown above:

This tote is a 14″ x 11″ x 3-1/2″ deep tote with one exterior pocket and two interior pockets- one zippered. It is designed for hard wear with two layers of fabric at the bottom and straps that won’t rip off.
There are many other pretty modern design fabrics that you can buy by the yard. The fabric shown on the exterior of the bags above is no longer for sale, but what’s important is that you go for an equally large and bold print with strong contrasting colors to get a similar effect as the bag shown here.

Best Tote Bag Tutorial You’ve Ever Seen

Yep. That was the thruth. Until it was removed from the web: I had a complete amazingly well-illustrated tutorial for this bag. But it has been taken off-line by JCaroline. (If you are interested in this bag pattern, leave me a comment below. If I get enough requests for it, I’ll make you the pattern for this bag in 2016 sometimes. Okay?! )

Alternative to the Best Tote Bag Tutorial

Meanwhile: have a look at this pattern. It is for a similar style of tote bag. And, with the added bonus of having lots of internal pockets (ie. a highly desirable added feature for a tote bag!):
