With finished dimensions of 15" (38cm) wide, 16" (40cm) tall, and 2.5" (6cm) deep, this beautifully big bag is perfect for shopping and days out, running errands, or even apparently a quick trip to the gym (so I've been told....), with plenty of room for everything you need for a fantastic day out!



Bag Features


The Window Shopper Tote has 6 pockets - 4 inside and 2 outside - plenty of room for everything you need! The oval metal grommet handles really make this bag stand out, with a detachable cross body strap for heavier loads - carrying 7kgs of rock samples isn't recommended!  There is also a zipped top to keep everything safe inside. The bag can be stabilised with a foam stabiliser and medium weight interfacing such as SF101, G700 or F220.


One of my testers, Amy, has written a great tutorial on how to add a flap to the front pocket, which you can read here.
