The Trader Tote by Mary Make & Do Printed Sewing Pattern
Introducing the Trader Tote by Mary Make & Do!
Mary originally designed this sturdy work-horse bag as a commuter carry-all to haul all her WIPs, books, notebooks, iPad & laptop between her home studio and her classroom at Owl & Drum Fabric Shop.
After lots of requests for a pattern, you can now make one of your very own! It’s an all-purpose, roomy bag that is perfect for makers, students, parents & kids, really everyone! Featuring pockets for your phone, eyeglasses, laptop and a divided pocket you customize, you can use your Trader Tote to carry everything you need, everywhere your life takes you!
Finished size is approximately 18" wide, 12" tall and 7" wide across the base of the bag.

(Canvas/Linen, Quilting Cotton, or Linen/Chambray)
*Optional for Handles: 1 1/3 Yards Cotton Twill

Inside Divided Pocket, Glasses Pocket & Phone Pocket: 1/2 Yard
