We've got a new bag sewing pattern for you! Introducing The Bucket Tote!
Originally designed for The Bag Retreat, The Bucket Tote is a beginner-level make. Casual yet stylish, The Bucket Tote has a classic shape. Its minimal pieces make this a quick and fun sew, and with plenty of pockets and a key hook, you don't need to worry about losing things inside, despite the Tote's generous size!

What a corker! Laura of Handmade by Laura Simons used a ditsy dotty interior and rainbow cork outer for her stunning Bucket Tote. We love the double-sided strap!
Lynn of She Wears Red Feathers also went for a double-sided strap, and made her outer panels two-tone, too! What a super idea! Just looking at Lynn's bag makes us peckish. Anyone for an ice cream?
