The Structured Tote


In this two-part class, we’ll make a simple, sturdy tote with boxed corners, an inside zipper pocket, and a magnetic snap closure for a clean, professional finish. If you’ve taken Intro to Sewing and are looking for a project with enough detail to take your skills up a notch, this is the perfect project for you! Also great for more experienced sewists that want a fun project or a cute new bag!
