About this item


Creative Thimble Professional Tote Pattern. This Professional Tote has all the pockets and compartments needed for todays "professional" women. Whether you work in an office or not, this tote has it all. There is a pleated pocket on each side of the tote to hold a bottle of water, umbrella, magazine, baby bottle or telephone. Also, on the front is a zippered pocket to hold your ID and Passport for your airport travel. Behind that pocket is one for your boarding pass. On the backside is one large pocket for a newspaper. On the inside, there is a large center dividing zippered pocket that holds file folders. There is plenty of room inside for a laptop computer. Several pockets are inside for your business cards, keys, pens, PDA, and more. To finish it off, there is a zipper that will close tight to keep the contents secure. This would also work great as a sewing tote with a place for patterns or books, fabrics and notions. Comes with picture, pattern and complete instruction. Finished size is approximately 15 x 18 inch.

Difficult to understand, but lovely to make
I love this tote and have made several for friends. Am now working on one for myself. Personally, I think it could use more illustrations as the instructions are lengthy, detailed, and can get confusing. There are some surprises and I've made some adjustments because the first bag I made that had all pockets, etc, was very stiff and bulky to sew, so I leave out pockets I don't want. I also make the pockets I do want with a very light batting instead of using Deco bond which makes them softer and easier to work with. I also do not Deco Bond the linings (my preference). I've done some other things just for my own benefit, such as leaving out the center zip pocket as it cuts down on the available room inside the tote...I can still slip my laptop inside. All in all, the tote is definitely not for the beginner. It is a complicated pattern, but once you understand the process and instructions, it is a lovely tote that can be customized and is very useful. Also, this tote is NOT cheap to make. I put an average of about $45 in materials in it per tote.I Don't Recommend This ProductAbout Me: Sewer or QuilterSkill Level: Intermediate
