Introducing the Teddy Tote! November 12 2016, 0 Comments

Some designs come from an artistic vision and some come about to fill a need! Say hello to the new perfect everyday tote bag - the Teddy Tote! We both live in bag-free areas, so every trip the grocery store, Target or clothing store requires us to bring our own bag. I wanted something a little cuter than a canvas bag, but something quick and fun to make - that is how we ended up with the Teddy Tote

Introducing the Teddy Tote!

This pattern has multiple design options so each bag you make will have it's own flair and personality! The Teddy Tote takes about 2 hours to make and finishes 13" wide, 14.5" tall and 5" deep.

There are so many uses for these bags! I keep a couple in my car for grocery store trips and random outings. The possibilities are endless: grocery bag, kid's car bag, wine or beer bag, dog bag, quilting class bag, library bag, craft bag, gift bag or an overnight bag! There are so many uses for the Teddy Tote! I am making them for all my friends this year for the holidays!
