The Mimosa Market Tote by Blue Calla Sewing Patterns (Printed Paper Pattern)
The Mimosa Market tote is a very large bag that can be used as a market tote, a beach tote or a large everyday tote.
It has 2 large exterior side zipper pockets, a large oval base, an optional tab closure with instructions for a twist lock but can easily be substituted with a different closure. The vinyl accents could easily be replaced with fabric - the instructions will apply to both methods. The interior of the bag comes with 2 large slip pockets and an optional removable false bottom to give the bag extra support at the base.
