This is a pattern for a child’s personalized tote bag. It is perfect for use as a library book bag for kindergarten or school.

The bag is lined and interfaced to make it durable. It features a handy pocket on the front on which you can applique your child’s name and a groovy helicopter design.

This bag doesn’t just have to be for boys. Turn it into a girly bag by choosing one of my girly applique designs and making it up in pretty fabrics.


• A detailed tutorial with step by step instructions and colour photographs.

• Applique templates for all the letters of the alphabet and a template for the helicopter design.

• A list of materials required.

This pattern was easy to follow and produced a very nice looking bag. I did use fusible interfacing on the bag fabric as well as the lining fabric to make the bag a lot more sturdy.
