Sheridan Tote Bag

It has pockets! We love pockets whether they appear in our dresses, pants, skirts, or tote bags. The Sheridan Tote is a beginner friendly, FREE tote bag sewing pattern with an extra large feature front pocket.

The Sheridan Tote can be made using just one print or you can mix and match two or more prints. Canvas, Linen, and Denim make great exterior fabrics.

FINISHED SIZE: 11” wide on bottom /14 ½” wide on top X 12” tall X 4” deep

The pattern includes instructions for leather handles, but webbing or handles made from the main fabric (see video below) work wonderfully too.

For even more scrappy fun, opt for a patchwork pocket detail!

Check out the video below for making easy bag handles.

You really don’t need any fancy tools or supplies to create pretty handles. But we have found that the EZ Point and Turner tool can make your life a whole lot easier for turning those long handles for heavier bags. We highly recommend adding it to your lineup. Here is a quick video to see it in action!
