It's A Cinch Tote Pattern Booklet

4 items left

With it's roomy practical size and smart (but easy-going) looks, this bag is sure to become an everyday favourite. This bag features; 2 handy pockets (one external zip pocket and a lining pocket) an easy to insert zip top and clever cinching straps that make the bag more compact and boxy if desired.  It may not look like it, but this bag design uses an easy to insert zip. This particular zip technique looks professional, it's genuinely easy to do and involves no hand sewing (big bonus!). With its versatile easy-going looks this bag just seems to fit in happily wherever it goes. It looks smart enough for an up-town shopping trip, or for the more stylish student, but it looks just as great at a summer picnic or as a 'loads of things to do, loads of places to go to' kind of bag. Another great feature about this bag is that you can cinch-in the sides to make the bag more compact, this is very useful when you have packed light and you don't want the contents to roll around in the bag (this is great for keeping things like gadgets/laptop under control when you need to run for the bus!).
