Roll With It Tote (Paper Pattern) by Andrie Designs

Introducing the Roll With It Tote by Andrie Designs (formerly two pretty poppets)! This is an easy to follow sewing pattern to create your very own beautifully curved tote bag. Designed to show off your favourite fabric, the Roll With It Tote is a practical and eye-catching design suitable for everyday use.

It features piping, classy o-rings, a recessed zipper closure, two outer slip pockets and an inner zipper pocket. It comes in two sizes, small and large, and will cover all your needs from a trip to the races or a coffee date in town, to a shopping day with friends or simply as your everyday tote bag.

It is suitable for an advanced beginner sewer. All pattern pieces have been digitally drawn. Wary of zippers? Don’t be! Throughout the pattern I give detailed and comprehensive instructions and diagrams to make adding the zipper/s an easy and stress-free experience.
