The Totes Ma Tote is... Totally Ma Tote! I love this bag. A nice large, trendy looking tote with straps attached with four shiny buckles in grommets. It's useful, and it's professional looking too.

It's not just a normal tote. Plenty of pockets! There are 3 options for pockets inside: A zipper pocket, a double slip pocket and a large pocket suitable for a small tablet, reader or just those pesky bills.

Finished Size:

  • Width at Top: 17” (43 cm)
  • Width at bottom: 13” (33 cm)
  • Height: 12” (30 cm)
  • Depth: 4” (10 cm)

This pattern is suitable for an intermediate sewer. Pattern instructions are provided in both imperial and metric measurements and are geared towards an intermediate sewer. Measurements are given to cut pattern pieces with a rotary cutter, ruler and mat.
