The pattern for the Stow It All has a full requirements list with suggestions on where to obtain your hardware, 40 pages of comprehensive instructions which include 77 step by step colour photos. There are 2 photos of the finished bag, printing instructions and test squares to print to check your scale. Cutting measurements are provided PLUS 12 Pattern pieces are included - YOU choose which you prefer to use! (Except where a pattern piece is required such as for a shaped piece!)

PLUS a TEXT ONLY version of the instructions (10 pages) comes bundled with your pattern for printing purposes, should you not need or wish to print all of the photos! Simply refer to your electronic versions for photos if needed! Saves on ink!

ALL my patterns have measurements for both Metric and Imperial and seam allowances are included too!

The Stow It All is the perfect sized tote for a day out shopping, with plenty of pockets to keep organised while you shop! This spacious tote features 5 exterior slip pockets, 1 exterior twist lock pocket, a recessed zipper closure, an interior zipper pocket, two slip pockets and a pen pocket. Of course the addition of a twist lock, rivets (optional), bag feet, rings and cute hooks on the straps makes this tote look so professional!
