Anna has a similar tote that she made many years ago that has been her go-to ever since! It goes with her to and from work, on car trips, and anywhere she travels when she need to stash a notebook and extra items that don’t normally fit in her purse. She's happy to be able to share this with you and hope you enjoy sewing it up and putting it to use. This is a quick tote designed with a few optional add-ons if you’re feeling up to it. Otherwise, it is beautiful and useful in its simplicity as is.

This is the paper pattern version includes: instruction booklet with step-by-step instructions and professional illustrations, rotary cutting instructions/measurements for all rectangles (just cut and sew, no need to cut out pattern pieces), and a label sheet for keeping organized. All tucked into a resealable poly bag.
