Finley Tote (new pdf pattern)

Happy Wednesday friends!

I have a new pattern to share with you today and I think you're going to like this one :)

Finley is a super useful everyday tote bag, perfectly sized to fit all the necessities one might need to carry plus a bit of room to spare, of course. 

The addition of adjustable removable strap gives you a few options so you can wear it as a crossbody bag, shoulder bag, or a simple tote bag

interior zipper pocket

Finley features a large exterior zipper pocket plus a pleated slip pocket and another zipper pocket in the lining. Yes, plenty of pockets to help one stay organized :)

And, there's an inset main zipper to keep all the treasures inside your tote safe and secure. You could, of course, decide to skip this step and make the bag without main zipper closure if you wish. 

FINISHED SIZE : 13'' tall x 10'' wide on bottom x 4'' deep

Let me show you the gorgeous totes my super talented testers created.

Seriously you guys. Isn't this the most stunning tote ever? Priscilla did a fabulous job sewing up this beauty and I totally want to make one just like this right away :)

Ellyn made this super fancy Finley tote for her daughter. She used faux suede which has a feel and look of burnished leather which I think elevates this tote to a whole new level.

And then there's this pretty floral tote made by Gabriela. Beautiful, isn't it?
