The handle of this tote is braided using the super-cool "mystery plait" technique used in traditional leather crafting. I've adapted it to make in fabric so that the handle emerges seamlessly from the body of the tote, giving a unique designer look & satisfyingly thick, strong handle. The base has a pleated detail to give a soft, up-to-date shape.

You can create it at home with my clear, accurate PDF pattern & instructions.

Please note measurements are written in centimetres only (not inches).

The tote is fully lined with an internal pocket & is a great practical everyday size (see image above for the finished dimensions).
