Hi all and my gosh am I ridiculously excited today!!!! After what feels like a VERY long wait, I am pumped to announce that the Classic Market Tote is finally released and all yours!!! YAY!!!
For those who weren’t aware, the Classic Market Tote was originally released in the July 2018 issue of the Australian crafting magazine, Quilters Companion. You can find out more about that release here. Since then, it’s quite literally been one long, and at times impatient, countdown to bring us to today and her public release!
The Classic Market Tote is the third pattern in the Andrie Designs Classic Collection – an ongoing collection of patterns designed to be simple and quick to construct, yet effective and classic in design. They are patterns designed for all types of makers, whether you make to sell or simply sew for pleasure.
This simple yet eye-catching tote bag features two outer slip pockets, a generously sized main compartment complete with a key hook, and an inner zipper pocket. It also includes a simple magnetic snap closure, gorgeous O-rings, and straightforward construction techniques.
As always, the Classic Market Tote my testing team have made from this pattern are simply amazing and their photos speak louder than any words I can type, so let’s get on to checking them out!
