Girls Bag , Tote, Sewing Pattern with Video Tutorial

The tote is just too cute and I take mine everywhere! You can make the handbag in oilcloth or heavy weight linen/cotton mix fabrics. I tend to buy mine from upholstery outlets rather than fabric stores. They have beautiful selections and you will be spoiled for choice. Designed with girls in mind. You can choose your own level here and make this bag as easy or as advanced as you like it. For each level there are different videos from start to finish making learning so much more interesting. Maybe I did a few too many instructions here but some of you love the comfort of knowing, which ever method you need, we got you covered. Browse through the videos below to see which one tickles your fancy. Our step by step video and photo instructions are making sewing so much more enjoyable and even a beginner can now sew like a professional. The pattern is available for immediate download so you can get started straight away.

DIGITAL PATTERN You’ll receive an email immediately after purchase with a link to download PDF files of the pattern and instructions, which you can print at home on either A4 or US Letter paper. When choosing the pattern make sure you tick which format you need. In the US and Canada choose US letter size which is wider and shorter than A4 paper. Everywhere else opt for A4 paper format.
