Six Pocket Tote Bag

How to sew a 6 Pocket Tote Bag

Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

Today I am here to show you how to sew this fabulous 6 Pocket Tote Bag. For this project you will need approximately 1 yard of solid twill / cotton / duck fabric and 1 yard of printed linen / cotton blend or twill fabric.

To begin, precut the following pattern pieces:

Cut 4 18″ x 18″ body panels (two printed, two solid)

Cut 4 18″ x 9″ pocket panels (two printed, two solid)

Cut 2 5″ x 60″ straps (both printed)

The pockets are positioned 5″ from the base of the exterior body panels and the straps are positioned 5″ from the sides of the exterior body panels. The corners are stitched 6″ across.

I hope you enjoy the project and will share photos of your finished tote bags with me on Instagram and Facebook using #sewspire and @sewspire.

I will be back soon with another inspired sewing project. Until then, please know the creative genius in me will be celebrating the creative genius in you!
