After all, that’s what we’re here for, to share beautiful patterns for free. Come learn with us how to make a Tote with Many Pockets. You know that bag you won’t abandon and want to use every day? This is the tote with many pockets.

I don’t know about you, but most people love having that many pockets to separate items and carry everything in a more organized way. It is much easier to find the keys, the wallet, the notebook. Following the step by step you will see that it is not difficult to make this tote. The most important tip that we always like to remember is the importance of choosing quality materials. For this pattern, you don’t need to choose very soft fabrics.


It is important that the fabric is not too soft, to give structure to the tote. The more structured the fabric, the firmer your bag will be. This pattern allows the combination of many different colors and prints, one for each pocket. You can use scraps from other patterns to make smaller pockets for the handle. There are many options and we are sure you will create beautiful combinations.

As for sizes, in the pattern you will find all measurements. If you’re thinking of making a bigger bag, increase the base of the bag and continue fitting the pockets as you like. If you need to carry larger items like a computer and notebooks, measure them and then start making the cutouts. The last layers are thicker by adding more layers of fabric because of the pockets. Choose a stronger needle, suitable for this type of sewing.
