I wanted to make a tote bag for two reasons. I know it's becoming increasingly vital for us all to take steps towards being more green, and decrease our plastic usage and waste consumption. I thought having an especially lovely tote bag would make it all the more likely that we'd remember to take it with us when we pop out to the grocery. This bag is perfect for doing your shopping, but I know you'll find it useful as an everyday bag too.
I also wanted to create a project for those of you looking to start sewing. This is a simple beginner pattern that will introduce you to the very basic skills that form the foundation for many other projects.
I hope you enjoy making and using this pattern as much as I've enjoyed making it for you! Thanks again for following along!

Pockets do make a garment SO much better.

While this tutorial is part of the Sofia sew-along series, you can follow these steps if you're looking to add a pocket to just about anything. Let's dive right in.
