The Amaryllis Tote - PDF sewing pattern
The Amaryllis is a medium/large sized tote with top carrying rolled handles and a removable/optional cross body strap. It has 2 exterior zippered pockets on the front exterior and 2 side slip pockets at each side. The main closure is a zipper. The bottom of the bag has pleats to give it depth making the interior very roomy.
For the bag's interior, there are 2 slip pockets and 1 zippered pocket.
*** Please take the time to read through the pattern before starting to make sure you've caught all the smaller details that are important for a successful outcome.
If you do not want to make your own handles, I highly recommend these pre-made handles by MM Cork Supply as they are identical to the ones instructed in the pattern and are a huge time saver.
