Sidekick Tote & Megan Travel Tote Pattern


Sidekick Tote & Megan Travel Tote Pattern


Sidekick Tote & Megan Travel Tote Pattern


This listing is for one PDF pattern to make the Sidekick Tote & Megan Travel Tote.  The pattern includes all the instructions, dimensions for fabric cuts, and pattern pieces needed to make two different sizes of tote bags. This pattern has 47 pages that include great instructions and more than 100 color photographs so you can see what your doing at each step! There are also instructions for printing that help reduce paper waste. This pattern is designed for those with intermediate sewing abilities.  I think you will enjoy making and using both sizes of this tote! 

The smaller, Sidekick Tote will keep any “Super Woman” organized with its great function and style. The Sidekick
Tote’s details – piping at the top of the curved pockets, a separating zipper bag closure, and strap pads – give this bag a professional look. There are twelve pockets in this tote; seven slip pockets, two expandable slip pockets, two zipper pockets, and a padded pocket for a tablet. The base is reinforced to handle heavy loads. This tote is the perfect Sidekick for everyday!
The Megan Travel Tote is a much larger version of the Sidekick Tote. It has all the same features, but in a size that is perfect for travel. The Megan Travel Tote is a stylish way to pack everything you need for a long weekend getaway!

I have included my email in the instructions so that if you have any questions as you make your tote you can email me and I will gladly help you!
