Margo Handbag – Tote Pattern From Lazy Girl Designs

I love this pattern, can’t you just imagine yourself throwing  everything in your bag, grabbing it up and off out to browse the shops, have a nice  luncheon, join friends for coffee, or fill it with the essentials for baby.

It’s such a great handy shape and could be dressed up or down with your choice of fabrics.

The bag features a secure zip top closure, handy front pockets as well as several interior pockets.

(Instructions are included to make Margo without a zipper if desired)

Finished it would measure a very handy 10 1/4 ” x 9 1/4″ x 4″
