Expandable Tote Bag – Free Sewing Tutorial

A Free PDF from Teresa Down Under

Expandable tote bag free tutorial1

Made with charm squares this tote bag tutorial by TeresaDownUnder is very well photographed and written.  Very straight forward instructions and sweet details.  The classy tote bag is very roomy as a large capacity tote. The size of this bag is adjustable by loosening or tightening the belt through the loops sewn  to the outside.  I love the way the handles meet the body of the bag.  Nice details!
