The Fiesta Tote Bag

The Fiesta Tote Bag

I recently made a super cute tote bag!   I was testing a new  pattern,  called  the "Fiesta Tote",  by  Samantha , of  Sewing Patterns by Mrs H.

The Fiesta Tote Bag
You can buy it HERE
I really love it!!   It has some fun features:    rivets,  and  webbing  for both short handles and a removable strap.   There's an outside zipper pocket, and  inside slip pocket to keep you organized!

Here are the details:    

Pattern:   The Fiesta Tote PDF Pattern  by Sewing Patterns by Mrs H
Size:   W 14" x H 11.5" x D 5"

Fabrics:  Miss Kate     by Bonnie and Camille for Moda

Special components:  Rivets  ,  Webbing,  zippers, magnetic snap. swivel clips. Soft and Stable interfacing

See the back outer  zippered pocket?  I love it!!
The Soft and Stable interfacing gives just the right of stiffness to the tote.

It has both short handles....
The short handles
and you can use the long body strap!

The body strap.   It's removable, too!

There are lots of pockets inside!!
I added a zippered pocket, too.   Because you can never have too many pockets!!

Inside the Fiesta Tote

There's a magnetic snap closure , too.

I love the size of this tote.... it can hold a lot , and yet look stylish as a purse.

Amanda's directions are clear and well written. This is a good bag for a beginner sewer.

I had a lot of fun making this bag!  Since I gave it as a gift, I want to make one for myself this summer!
