This pattern duo includes the Tough Tote pattern which 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. Utilizing webbing and pre-made binding makes it 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

• Box Corners
• ‘Stay Put’ Lining with Seam Binding Construction

The Flaptastic Pouch is all about fun and whimsy with a big splash of practicality. It has a slim profile with a main zippered compartment large enough to carry small essentials. The clear vinyl flap zip pocket (which inspires its name) is bound with double-fold bias fabric and provides a unique way to see and store small items. A slip pocket for flat items sits safely tucked behind the clear pocket. While this pouch’s back snap tabs allow it to be used in four different ways... when paired with the Tough Tote the Flaptastic adds more organization, personalization, and utility! Snap to your tote when on the go, and unsnap it and carry it alone when you only need a clutch.
And with three flap styles to choose from, you can create the perfect look: classic plain, glitter-filled for some extra fun, and animal-face which mixes art and sewing for an adorable novelty look!

• 3 Flap Styles: plain, glitter-filled, & animal-face
• 4 Ways to Wear: clutch, shoulder/crossbody, hip bag / fanny pack / bum bag, & tote add-on
• Clear Front Zip Pocket
• Slip Pocket
• Secure Zippered Main Pocket
• Key Clip
• Adjustable Strap
• FINISHED SIZE: 9”W x 5.5”H
• SKILL LEVEL: Advanced & Adventurous Beginner
• SUPPLIES: see photo for supplies and notions list
• RECOMMENDED FABRICS: quilting weight cotton for exterior and interior fabrics

-basic sewing skills: you should be familiar with sewing from patterns along with common sewing and general bag-making terms
-zipper and snap installation
-sewing with vinyl
-working with double-fold bias: patterns use pre-made bias binding. While the cut-list includes the size for cutting your own, there are no instructions within the pattern for making your own.

-I recommend a 16 Gauge Clear Vinyl for the Flaptastic. Otherwise look for a clear vinyl that can bend but wants to hold its shape and doesn’t easily wrinkle.
-Flaptastic animal-face style: check out the included supplemental guide for examples of different mediums to use, but I most recommend acrylic/oil-based paint pens or cut adhesive vinyl if you have a die-cutting machine.

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 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 ❤️

I work comic cons and take cash -- this bag was PERFECT for it. The zippered pockets are perfect to hold cash, everything stays in place when the bag is all zipped up, and the pattern is adorable. The package arrived right on time, and was packaged perfectly. Thanks!
