Introducing The Piped Pocket Tote!
A little while back we asked our bagineers:
"Which bagmaking techniques are you most afraid of trying?"
We were a little surprised to see piping towards the top of the list! And, so, we now have for you the perfect project for practising piping - The Piped Pocket Tote!
Our latest release uses piping to accent the features of your bag, such as the angled side pockets, and the lovely large front and back panels!
The Piped Pocket Tote has a lovely large front and back panel that you can use as a base for embroidery or applique.
Each side panel has two deep narrow pockets that are the perfect size for carrying the things you need easy access to, like your sunglasses, or face mask.

For a little extra pop, why not make your side pockets in contrasting colours?

Inside is a slip pocket, zip pocket, and a large central space. If you need more pockets, pick up a copy of Mrs H's Complete Bag Making Masterclass for instructions on changing up your bag pockets, and more ideas on how to customise your bags.
The Piped Pocket Tote comes with instructions and pattern pieces to make two sizes - large and small. The large tote is 13 3/4" wide x 11 1/2" high x 5 1/2" deep (35cm x 29cm x 14 cm). And, the small tote is 11 1/2" wide x 9 1/4" high x 4 1/2" deep (29cm x 23.5 cm x 11.5cm).
