Additional Notes

All required fabric is based on 44" wide bolt. This pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

Go for it! This pattern is so worth it - a wonderful everyday bag, overnight bag, diaper bag (I would think), etc.

This pattern was great to work with! A little more work than just your simple tote bag but totally worth it. I expect it to last for years!

I did not include a snap for the outer pocket and now wish I had as it flops open pretty far when there is anything in there. I also changed up the internal pockets.
