The interior has a *HUGE* choice of zippered and open pockets to keep your keys, laptop, pens, wallet, phone and oh-so-many everyday essentials at your fingertips.
This sanity-saving tote will take you to work, to the gym, on an overnight trip or a shopping jaunt in style, but it’s also fab as a chic accessory for a busy Mom-on-the-go, a frequent-flyer or your favorite, hyper-organized neat-freak!
Choose your interior pocket layout to suit your lifestyle needs, because you’ll want at least one of these roomy beauties to keep your hectic life in check. This gorgeous tote will also make a fantastic gift when you fill one with goodies for a bon-voyage or graduation gift, or a baby shower.
For the tote, you’ll need around 1 yard/92cm of fabric and the same amount in fusible interfacing; to add the suggested pockets on the lining, you’ll also need about 2 yards or 182cm lining.
To complete the tote you’ll need 1 x 28” or 72cm long zipper, ( you can also use 2 x 14” or 35cm zippers if you can’t find a long zipper), plus a 7” or 18cm long zipper for every zippered interior pocket you’d like to have. You’ll also need 2 magnetic purse snaps, 4 purse feet and a piece of plastic tapestry canvas or similar, about 7” or 18cm X 18” or 46cm for the tote base.
