The finished bag measures 23 1/2" wide x 15" tall x 4" deep. It featured an inside pocket, magnetic snap closure, pleated or pin tucked body (your choice which one), and hidden pockets behind the pleated sections. You are not stuck making just the tote. There will be a smaller shoulder bag option along with a clutch option included in the pattern. I am doing my best to write the instructions clearly, so that even a beginning sewist can make this bag!
The flower attachment I made with Janome's Tattered Flowers Tutorial. I used safety pins to attach the flowers. I like being able to change the flowers to different colors for added fun.
