The Newsstand Tote – Fresh + Functional!

Newsstand Tote Pattern Download by Sew Scatterbrained

Designed to be a “fresh, functional all-purpose bag with a clean profile” the Newsstand Tote sewing pattern provides you with all of the instructions within ten pages, some of which must be taped together to create the full-size pattern piece. The Newsstand Tote measures 14″ high x 11″ wide x 4″ deep. This tote bag will easily hold a stack of coloring books and pencils, plenty of diapers and snacks for the kids. If you never go anywhere without a water bottle, having the two elastic side pockets to keep your drinks upright, possibly preventing a stained mess is very reassuring. The Newsstand Tote also offers a handy interior slip pocket for other small items like your keys, transit pass, or phone.  The Newsstand Tote also makes a fabulous diaper bag!
