As my kids grow older, our weekends are filled with soccer games and piano lessons, baseball tournaments and birthday parties, afternoons with grandma and spend the nights with friends and cousins. We really needed something to tote all this stuff around! Somethings kids could pack themselves and close up tight so things we not misplaced and forgotten. Something that would look great stuffed to the brim or with just a few special items in it. Solution? A Sleep Over Tote!

Here are some of the things you will love about making this tote… 1. It uses a full half yard piece of fabric for the exterior and a full half yard piece for the lining. Very little fabric waste!!! 2. It has only 2 pattern pieces to print and cut out and no taping! 3. Large interior pockets that are optional. 4. You will get a beautiful and professional looking bag that will be used over and over again!

This bag is perfect for sleep overs but also for toting blankets, snacks and balls to kids events. It works great for picnics and beach excursions too! It is large and sturdy but not big and bulky. Perfect for weekend travel and storage when not in use. The Sleep over Tote is simple to make but has lovely professional details like special handles, drawstring closure and large interior pockets.

Materials needed are 2 half yards of fabric, interfacing (optional), extra fabric for pockets and handles, and ribbon or rope for the pulls. So simple! This is a great beginner project and experienced sewers will love the options for altering the pattern to suit their own needs.

The completed size of the bag is 44cm x 51cm'' not including the handles. Please contact me with any questions!
