PDF sewing pattern and tutorial for ruffle tote bag.

This handy tote bag features a gorgeous ruffle on both the front and back. You have the option of trimming the ruffle with fabric or with lace. The bag is lined with pellon to make it soft and durable. It also features a pocket on the inside that is divided into three sections and includes space for a pen, mobile phone, and a small journal, keys etc.

It could be used by kids for carrying toys, books and treasures when travelling, as a school library bag, to hold snacks and a change of clothes when visiting a friend's house. Mum could use it for a quick trip to the shops, as a craft bag, and for anything else you can think of! It would also make a perfect gift for birthdays, mother's day, Christmas, Valentine's day, etc.

Finished size of the bag:
• 24cm x 29cm (9 1/2” x 11 1/2”) plus handles (20cm/8” drop)
• 5cm (2") gusset

The pattern includes a detailed tutorial with step by step instructions and colour photographs. There are no pattern pieces; I have provided the dimensions of the fabric to be cut.

Pattern is suitable for sewers with basic sewing skills. Pattern support is available via email if required.
