Make your own custom tote using your favorite fabrics and colors. Clear and complete instructions take you step-by-step through the process of quilting, cutting, marking and sewing. 1. Pick a size ? medium, large, or extra-large. 2. Choose a handle length ? short for hand-carrying or long for carrying over the shoulder. 3. Decide whether you want the security of an easy zipper closure or an open top. Then, sew and go! The optional zipper is easy to install and opens to fall flat against the bag giving full access to the interior space. Each tote has two outer slip pockets for quick access to cell phone, keys, and more. Rather than inner pockets, pattern includes instructions for removable see-through zippered project bags.
