Description

Introducing the Classic Carryall Handbag & Tote by Andrie Designs! This is the first pattern in the new Andrie Designs Classic Collection – an ongoing collection of patterns designed to be simple and quick to construct, yet effective and classic in design. They will be patterns designed for all types of makers, whether you make to sell or simply sew for pleasure.

The Classic Carryall Handbag & Tote pattern comes in two sizes – Handbag size and Tote Bag size. It features simple piecing, a vertical outer zipper pocket on the back, a full zipper closure along the top and an inner zipper pocket as well.

It also features box corners, shiny hardware including optional bag feet, and straightforward construction techniques, making this bag a quick and easy sew.

This pattern comes with two files – the pattern instructions/pieced pattern pages, and a large print pattern pieces file suitable for printing at your local print shop on the correct sized paper. It has 10 pages of clear, detailed instructions. It is suitable for an advanced beginner sewer. All pattern pieces have been digitally drawn. Wary of zippers? Don’t be! Throughout the pattern I give detailed and comprehensive instructions and diagrams to make adding the zipper/s an easy and stress-free experience.

    Pattern was amazingly simple to follow, but the completed bag doesn’t look “simple”. I was more than happy with the results. Finished my work on a Thursday, and by that Saturday the bag was sold. I would highly recommend this pattern.

    I’m sorry to report that I have not received the pattern yet. I wonder if it was lost in the mail?

      Hi Lenora, sorry to hear you haven’t received your pattern yet. I know Australia Post can be a little slow at times. Please let me know if you haven’t received it by the end of next week and I’ll look to remedy the situation. Cheers, Lisa.

    Just finished my first Classic Carryall and enjoyed the pattern and love the bag. The way the zipper opens nice and wide at the top is great!

    This pattern is easy to follow and produces a quailty bag that you’ll be proud to carry, or sell. I create bags to sell and this pattern is an easy one to embellish, or not, so that no two bags look alike.

    The pattern is very well written with detailed photos. That combination allows a beginner to create a stunning bag. I recommend this pattern whether you sew for yourself, sew gifts or sew to sell.

    The pattern pieces are printed on good quality paper, the instructions look easy to follow and the booklet looks durable. I love the coIoured photograph on the cover and look forward to using the pattern to turn some of my favourite fabrics into beautiful bags.
