WARNING: due to both the materials and construction method, seams are very thick! If your machine has trouble with thick seams, this may not be the pattern for you.

The Tough Tote maps out the soft bodied ‘classic tote’ design but utilizes durable materials and seam binding construction for a quick-to-sew utilitarian tote that’s made to last and has a lining that doesn’t slip around. It utilizes large body pieces and an extra base layer to ensure longevity. This tote has an open top with key clip and zipper pocket inside for added organization.
And since it utilizes webbing and pre-made binding, this is the pattern you’ll reach for when in need of a weekender, heavy hauler, or gift that is both speedy and sure to please everyone on your list!

• No Interfacing
• Foldable Body
• Box Corners
• ‘Stay Put’ Lining with Seam Binding Construction

I could not possibly love this bag any more. It is the perfect size: big enough for all my things but still small enough to not weigh me down. The fabric choices are SO fun! I get compliments on it everywhere! It's well made and so ME. I absolutely adore it ❤️

Elizabeth made me a black vinyl gear bag lined with ripstop material to make it easy to clean. It is the PERFECT make-up bag. It could also be used a very organized evening bag. I own several gear bags and the sewing and attention to detail in this bag is better than any I own. I'm ridiculously happy with this purchase. Aloha Elizabeth!

I am so delighted with this vinyl pouch I bought from Bitter Candy. The quality of the workmanship is stunning. My pouch arrived very quickly and there was the cutest little Pom Pom tassel on the zipper! Thank you Bitter Candy!
