'For Pleat's Sake' Tote

This tote is based on http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2010/08/free-bag-purse-pattern-for-pleats-sake-tote.html?cid=6a00d8341c574653ef01348694b59a970c

I added 3 pockets inside (because I think they’re very important in a bag :D

I used a blue and white stripe fabric on the outside, and a funky white and red fabric on the inside (it has ‘hello’ written in many languages)

I also used red leather straps (I actually got my fabrics based on this strap)

I’m probably gonna make this one again, but with a wider mouth so that I can fit more stuff in :p

PS I’m a terrible photographer so the photos came out a bit shaky and blurry

Material Notes

Exterior: blue and white strip cotton
Lining: white and red cotton
Strap: Red italian leather from u-handbag




Garment Type
Beach, Business, Casual, Preppy

    I love your choice of fabrics, i love strips and the combination with the red leather straps is extra stylish, well done.

    you are by far a better designer than photographer! :-) i love the bag very very much. it is stylish and elegant, but it looks very comfy as well and i am sure, it can hold loads of “important” things.

    great bag. and thank you very much for sharing. i think, i iwll try to make one of these too!
