This tote has options! Make all seven pockets or just choose your favorites.
This tote only looks complicated! Most pockets are simply rectangular shapes of fabric topstitched to the tote. Exterior pockets include inset zipper pocket, folder pocket, flap pocket, gusseted phone pocket, and a vinyl card pocket. Inside pockets are simple patch pockets or an optional cuffed pocket.
And don't let the zippers scare you. Both zippers are surprisingly simple to install. You'll love having a recessed zipper along the top and the inset zipper pocket is so handy.
Using various techniques, you will learn how to make seven different pockets. Then you can apply your new skill to any tote or bag in the future.
The large tote will fit letter-size pages (i.5" x 11" ) and the smaller size is perfect for everyday use.
