U-Totia Bag Pattern in 2 sizes

Description Everyone loves a tote bag, they are mega-practical, roomy and so easy to use - just fill and go! In this pattern you will find features that make her perfect for a multitude of journeys, from shopping to weekender bag, and with looks to match you'll be reaching for her again and again. She has bag corners to add shape, structure and protection and matching strap tape for handles, affixed with Chicago screws. You will love how roomy and substantial the tote is, with 3 pockets to keep you organised and still loads of room in the centre of the bag. She is made with foam, so stands up by herself, this layer of squish is important as I've also included a special protective pocket for your e-tablet (OK, let's just call it your iPad). The bag can be made in 2 sizes; the large size for 12.9" iPad Pro and the smaller size for 9.7" iPad pro and iPad Mini. Please note: The bag handles and corners I have used are ready made products which you can purchase from the U-Handbag shop, should you wish to make your own Bag base Corners, we have included a pattern.
