Best Free Tote Bag Patterns: 60+ of Our Favorites!

Tote Bag PatternsIndeed…it's strange how, over the decades, as our lives have apparently gotten simpler: what with iPads, color-sensing foundations, lash curling mascara, phones which are smarter than we are and so on; our bags have gotten no smaller.

In fact, as the capacities of our all-sorting gadgets has increased…so has our dire need for pocket space, zip compartments and extra padding. Bags are a wonderful and complicated business and it's each to his (or, more rightly HER) own.

It's true, most of us will have our trusty favorite, a bag that stands the test of time, with logically arranged pockets- God willing. However for many of us, different occasions call for vastly different bags, there's shopping, working, gym and craft meetings…all requiring us to carry vastly different paraphernalia.

If you've ever tried to find the right bag at a store, you know it's something of a losing battle…you've likely thanked your lucky stars (once again) that you know how to sew!

So, what better way to salute that absolute staple of modern (and FEMALE) life, the ever evolving Tote Bag, than with a roundup of our favorite Free Tote Bag Patterns and Tutorials, designed to ensure that you come prepared and organized: no matter the occasion!? Plus if you don't find what you're looking for here…be sure to check out our 50 Best Free Purse Patterns as well!
