This one feels like it’s been such a long time in coming. I am so thrilled that it’s finally here: my newest pattern, the Caravan Tote & Pouch. I’ve made three samples of both the tote and the pouch. I may have more cut and waiting for me to sew up.
Last fall, my friend Heather (.House. of A La Mode) contacted me about a tote she had designed and we ended up turning it into this pattern! I’m super happy she let me go all crazy on fun additions and adding the bonus zippered pouch project. You know I have a soft spot for zippered pouches – and zippers in general. Be sure to check out her Etsy shop or stop by Instagram (@houseofalamode) to see what she’s up to.
I hope you’ll love this pattern, it has really fun and functional features:
- Large exterior zippered pocket and exterior flap pocket
- Knitting needle slip pocket & yarn guides
- An awesome (if I do say so) bonus Zippered Pouch
- Perfect for mixing and matching your favorite prints!
Approximate Finished Dimensions:
Tote: 14” H x 14 1/2” W, 23” including handle, 5” D
Pouch: 7” H x 10 3/4” W
The Caravan Tote is perfect for knitters! There’s a special pocket inside the front zippered pocket that holds needles. And inside, the pocket has grommets that serve as yarn guides. Plus, they look awesome even if you don’t use them for yarn. The zippered pouch is the perfect place to stash all your knitting notions and fits neatly inside.
But of course it’s not just for knitters, I think you’ll love the organized features it has no matter how you end up using this tote. This is a fun project because you can customize it to make it work best for you!
I’ll share a how-to on attaching handles with rivets if you’re interested! Happy sewing and thank you so much for sharing my passion for sewing!
