The APEXcarry Pattern and Tutorial

The APEXcarry pattern from InCompleteStitches is available in two generous sizes; a standard tote and a bigger oversized option, making an awesome carry-all bag! The standard size APEXcarry is an ideal daily tote while the oversized bag is a nice size to carry everything you need for a trip to the beach, a day trip, the pool, or as an overnight bag for a weekend away. The APEXcarry has a simple modern style with fun, angled exterior pockets that can be secured with a snap & loop closure or with a simple line of stitching. Both APEXcarry sizes include tote and hand straps. The APEXcarry can be stitched as a simple open tote, with or without a magnetic snap closure and/or a side snap & loop closure. If you like extra security, the pattern also provides the option to add a main zippered closure. This pattern is rated as a "confident beginner" sewing pattern.


  • The standard APEXcarry has the following approximate finished dimensions: 34cm (13 1/2") tall x 34cm (13 1/2") wide at the base x 17cm (6 3/4") deep at the base. The main opening width is 51cm (20") and takes a 55cm (22") closed ended zipper.

  • The oversized APEXcarry has the following approximate finished dimensions: 40cm (15 3/4") tall x 40cm (15 3/4") wide at the base x 20cm (8") deep at the base. The main opening width is 60cm (23 1/2") and takes a 65cm (22") closed ended zipper.

You might have noticed that PatternPile looks a little different lately. We've been busy getting things moved around on a new service provider and there are some bugs to be worked out. I apologize for the broken links, I have to re-write each page and it will take me some time to finish... (eons)
