Newly updated 7/2021 with a cutting chart, new diagrams, and fresh links. The original pattern (2016) is still great and works, I've simply updated and refreshed everything.
The Santorini Tote is a great bag to make especially if using unconventional materials such as vinyl or cork.
Three size options are included in the pattern: small or purse size, medium, and large. Finished sizes are approximately (will depend on your bottom corners) 16" x 13", 19" x 16", and 21" x 17".
Pattern pieces are NOT included in the printed booklet - they are rectangles, very easy to measure and cut.
Purse & Regular size bag:
1/2 YD FOCUS fabric in quilting cotton, canvas, duck cloth, vinyl, upholstery fabric, or faux leather for exterior and straps. OR 1 roll vinyl (18" x 54")
1 YD quilting cotton for lining and optional pockets.
One main zipper cut to size per instructions.
1-4 (13”) zippers for optional zipper pockets.
1 YD foam interfacing or fusible fleece for a slouchier bag. I've also layered SF101 successfully and made many Santorini totes from leftover quilt batting. You decide the look you want, and choose from that.
