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).

This bag is SO much more than a cool handle. The pleating on the base is perfection and the internal pocket is elegant. I made mine out of denim with lightweight interfacing and it is sturdy with lots of structure. I will be making this many more times. The pieces are small enough I think you could make this bag out of a pair of old jeans with no additional seams which would be super-cool. I would also like to try cutting this out on the bias for a different look with stripes. I wish I could give this pattern more stars.

I have made other Constructivism items before. The instructions look complicated when you read them through, but if you just follow one step at a time, you will be rewarded with a unique finished project. The next step only makes sense once you have done the one before.

Excellent pattern. It looked as though it was going to be complicated having seen the pattern pieces, but reading through the clear and detailed instructions it was easy to understand how the pieces fitted together. I had lots of compliments about my bag, friends couldn't believe I had made it! I will definitely keep a lookout for more patterns by this designer.
