<strong>Co</strong>nstruction Notes:<br />

Seam allowance is ¼˝. Press seams as you go. Be sure to follow<br />

manufacturer’s directions if you are using closures that need to be<br />

added during construction. It's helpful to label the pieces as they<br />

are cut.<br />

Join tote top, midddle and bottom sections together.<br />

Make 2.<br />

Fuse fleece to the wrong sides of the tote front and back.<br />

Wrong sides together, place each fused piece on a muslin<br />

rectangle. Quilt as desired. Trim edges evenly to 18˝ x 21˝.<br />

Outside Pocket<br />

Fuse interfacing to wrong side of one pocket piece. Trace<br />

pocket curve onto paper to use as a guide. Fold each pocket<br />

in half, align template to fold, and cut curve.<br />

Layer pocket pieces right sides together. Sew around all sides<br />

and top edge leaving curved seam open Trim corners and turn<br />

right side out; press. Baste curved edge.<br />

Bind curved edge as you would for a quilt, folding binding<br />

ends in 1/4” to finish.<br />

Center pocket on front of the tote bag, aligning bottom of<br />

pocket with seam line between tote bottom and middle<br />

sections. Sew around sides and bottom of pocket, double stitch<br />

Sew Front and Back<br />

With right sides together, sew tote front and back together at<br />

the side and bottom edges. Press seam allowances open.<br />

To shape a flat bottom, fold the tote (with right sides<br />

together) so that the side seam meets up with the bottom.<br />

Pin the seams together. Measure 2 ½˝ from point and draw<br />

a line. Sew on the marked line. Stitch again to reinforce the<br />

seam.<br />

Trim<br />

2 ½˝<br />

Trim seam allowance to ½˝ and zig zag stitch along raw edges.<br />

Turn tote right side out.<br />

Lining<br />

Inside Pocket<br />

Fuse 6˝ x 21˝ interfacing to the wrong side one of the inside<br />

pockets. Place pocket pieces right sides together. Stitch along<br />

both long edges, leaving the sides open. Turn right side out<br />

and press. Top stitch 1/8˝ from the top edge of the pocket.<br />

Place pocket on the right side of one of the lining sides. Align<br />

the raw edges of the pocket with the side edges of the lining,<br />

approximately 3˝ down from the top. Baste pocket in place<br />

along side seams. Top stitch through all the layers along the<br />

bottom edge.<br />

6˝<br />

3”<br />

Front side of lining<br />

21˝<br />

If you like, divide the pocket into three separate pockets by<br />

stitching 6˝ in from each side. Back stitch to reinforce the<br />

seams.<br />

With right sides together, sew side and bottom edges of<br />

lining. Leave a 6˝ opening in the bottom seam for turning<br />

tote right side out. Press seams open. Stitch bottom corners<br />

in the same manner as you did for the tote. Leave lining<br />

wrong side out.<br />

Handles<br />

Press strips in half to mark center. Open and press ½˝ to<br />

the inside along both long edges of the handle strips. Open<br />

pressed edges. Place fusible interfacing on the wrong side of<br />

the handle strip between the fold lines. Fuse in place.<br />

6˝<br />

Fold in edges again, fold the handle strip in half lengthwise<br />

and press. Top stitch both long sides of the handle. Make two.<br />

Fold handle in half crosswise to find the center. Mark with a<br />

pin. Fold the handle in half lengthwise and measure 3˝ from<br />

each side of the pin. Stitch folded edges together for 6˝ to<br />

make a narrow section of the handle. It is easier to carry this<br />

way.<br />

3˝<br />

Flap<br />

Trace curve onto paper and use as a guide for the flap. Fuse<br />

interfacing to the wrong side of one flap piece. Place the two<br />

flap pieces wrong sides together. Pin or baste. Bind around<br />

curved edge as you would for a quilt. Baste raw edges of the<br />

straight edge of the flap.<br />

Measure 3˝ in from each side of the side seams and pin<br />

handles to right side of the front and back of the tote,<br />

matching raw edges. Place flap at the center of the right side<br />

of the bag back, raw edges even. Pin. Baste close to the edges.<br />

Insert tote body inside tote lining with right sides together.<br />

Tuck handles and flap down into the tote, out of the way.<br />

Align raw edges and side seams. Sew top edges together.<br />

Stitch again over handles and flap for reinforcement.<br />

Turn tote and lining right side out through the opening in<br />

the lining. Pull lining out of the tote and stitch the opening<br />

closed.<br />

Tuck the lining back down inside the tote. Be sure handles<br />

and flap are pulled out. Press top edge. Top stitch.<br />

Bottom Insert and Closure<br />

Place in the bottom of the tote. (Adjust size if necessary.)<br />

Add hook & loop tape, button and button hole, or snap to<br />

complete the tote bag.<br />
