Handmade Happiness 4 - Pelican Tote Free Pattern

Hello and welcome to Handmade Happiness!


When Namrata of Bagstock Designs asked if I could test her new tote bag pattern, I said yes immediately. The Pelican Tote bag is an easy beginner pattern. When I saw the design, I wanted to do a quilted one but I didn't have much time left after finishing my last orders of the week.

Luckily I have a patchwork print fabric and decided to use that instead. I did a simple diagonal grid line quilting on the pink fabric and wavy lines on the denim. The denim I used here is a lightweight denim. The pattern is very easy to follow with clear photo step by step instructions. 


The bag size is also perfect at 15” W x 12” H x 3" D. 
. Though it said to be a market tote, but I think it will be good as college tote or maybe a diaper bag. It has a front zip pocket, interior zip pocket and a magnetic snap closure. Easy and Quick project. The pattern is FREE and is available at Bagstock Designs Website.

That's one of my happiness from last week. Now, let's see who's the MVP from last week post:
