The Clematis Tote is the ideal bag for dropping books off at the library, picking up vegetables at the community garden, taking your towel and water bottle to the beach, and carrying your tablecloth and bread and fruit and wine to the mountains for an impromptu picnic. It’s a workhorse bag that can go with you anywhere, get dirty with you on all your adventures, get stained and well worn and loved. A tote that collects memories and becomes more beautiful with age.
This simple tote uses just two pattern pieces (one for the handles and one for the main body of the bag) and is beautifully unlined and French seamed throughout. The pattern comes with the option of long and short handles straps.
This is a paperless/printless pattern. The instructions provide the exact dimensions of the pieces to cut out and show step-by-step written instructions and illustrations on how to cut out the pieces and how to sew each step of the process.
