This tote bag pattern came about as part of my Pinterest UnTutorials blog series. First I sewed up this big lovely purse with a magnetic snap. As I set to work drafting a pattern, my readers begged for instructions to put in a zipper. I was wary that a zipper would ruin the pretty shape of the bag. But it didn't ruin anything... it turned out lovely! Details: There are two interior pockets. The handles aren't super long like shoulder straps, but I can fit this bag on my shoulder anyway. The bag has a bound top edge that matches the handles (if you want) and it is a nice roomy size. The center panel is quilted and there is piping that separates the middle from the sides. Don't leave off the piping... It adds a professional touch and hides mistakes, I promise! Finished dimensions: approximately 16'' wide at the top and 11'' tall (not including the handles). Note: This pattern file is meant for printing and contains instructions with minimal pictures.
