I am happy to be sharing the release of a new sewing pattern – the Arlo Bucket Tote. Looking for an easy sewing pattern? This PDF sewing pattern is for you.
Named after my youngest son, Arlo, this PDF pattern comes with instructions to sew two sizes – a large tote and also small tote.
The PDF pattern is available as an instant download in my online store. Included in the pattern are cutting instructions for both sizes and step by steps sewing directions with detailed drawings.
The Large Arlo Bucket Tote is an awesome “everything” bag.. It is a perfect market tote or travel bag. Consider it a pool bag, a work bag or even shove all your stuff in and take it to the gym bag.. Really, this totebag it is the ultimate “go anywhere bag”. I designed it to be super roomy with a nice large base and bottom.
Dimensions for the Large Tote: 10-1/4″ length x 6-1/4″ width x 10-3/4″ height. The base is: 10″ length x 6-3/4″ width
The Small Arlo Bucket Tote is… super cute and small. I loved the idea of a companion and “mini” version of the large tote. And I love small things. Do you often find yourself running out of the house for a quick errand and need just your wallet, keys and phone? This little bag is for you.
Dimensions for the small tote are: 7-1/2″ length x 4-3/4 width x 7-1/2″ height. The base is: 7-1/2″ length x 4-3/4″ width
Both bags have one interior hanging pocket. Don’t you just love the two bags in one sewing pattern option?
