The best thing about tote bag patterns is that they can hold a ton of stuff. A sturdy tote bag pattern can be stuffed to the brim and still be insanely convenient. The problem with this, however, is that it can be hard to carry. A flimsy handle makes carting that sewn tote bag around impossible. Avoid this problem when you make the Sturdy Handle Tote Bag Pattern. By adding a designer handle to your tote bag, it will be extra cute and extra easy to carry. Plus, it looks chic!

How nice! A very sturdy handle for a very useful tote bag. There is a pdf file to download with clear instructions that print on one sheet. Just yard of outer fabric, lining fabric and batting makes this classy tote. There are many styles of tote handles to purchase but these square designer handles give the tote some style.
