Stand Up & Tote Notice (Paper Pattern) by Andrie Designs

This gorgeous tote bag pattern is perfect for almost any occasion! It comes in three sizes (large tote bag, medium tote bag, small tote bag) and is a nice, quick sew that gives amazing results every time.

The Stand Up & Tote Notice tote bag has two outer slip pockets – one on the front and one on the back – giving you quick and easy access to things like your mobile phone and keys. It also has four inner slip pockets to help keep the contents of your bag nicely organized. A simple magnetic snap is all that is needed to keep this tote bag closed, making it a perfect choice for those who are yet to attempt zippers or are just looking for a nice easy sew with minimal hardware.

The medium and large sizes would also make fantastic diaper/nappy bags!!!

It is suitable for an advanced beginner sewer. All pattern pieces have been digitally drawn.
