I make these totes all the time. They are so super easy and I have used leather before and as long as you use a leather needle it is not that bad so the applique will not be that bad to do. I like that you can adjust the pattern to what size you like by changing the pieces. I have not done any handles on the outside yet but I like this look and I also love the bow on the one handle and you can even do on on the other too. Such a great tote to carry any where.

This patriotic themed tote is just charming. I like the look of the red star on the white background against the denim. Somehow the red patterned bow really dresses up this tote. There is a pdf template to download that may help with additional information. Otherwise, the few steps described are really are all that is needed to make this attractive carryall.
