The Wanderlust tote is designed to be quick and fun to sew. It’s a great bag for everyday use and can fit a small laptop, such as a Microsoft Surface. It has “hidden” handle ends, a front zip pocket and triple slip pocket inside. It has a unique hourglass shape and can be constructed in two ways: slouchy or sturdy (with fleece added). The pattern uses some unique techniques, giving you the opportunity to learn new skills.
