“Great pattern with a lot of great color pictures to guide you along the way. So many variations possible. I put a zipper in mine, and the directions for that were easy.”
Basic sewing skills will help you make this pocket tote in no time. As useful as it is beautiful, this bag features both interior and exterior pockets to hold all of your important items!
The bottom section on the outside make easily accessible pockets . The interior is fully lined in a coordinating fabric. Interior pockets are great for holding your cell phone, a spare pen (don't you hate it when you can't find a pen?), and your wallet - or whatever else you choose to store! Also includes an option for a zipper closure.
Pocket placement is fully customizable - you decide how many pockets you want, and what size to make them! You can even add an extra row of pockets if you prefer. A magnetic closure is a convenient way to keep contents secure.
*Bonus: Free Key Chain Pouch Wallet Ebook included.
The Aivilo Tote ranges from 11" wide x 7.5" tall x 4" deep in the small size to 17" wide x 11.5" tall x 4" deep in the extra large size, and works wonderfully as a purse or small carry-all - it even works as a great, stylish diaper bag!

Great pattern with a lot of great color pictures to guide you along the way. So many variations possible. I put a zipper in mine, and the directions for that were easy.
A great purse! I've made several of these as gifts. Everyone always loves them and all the pockets!
such a great bag. My girls have all loved theirs and the pattern goes together very easily. Thank you!
Great bag. Easy to understand directions and sews together beautifully.
Using this pattern AGAIN for teachers' gifts! Thanks for a great pattern with super instructions! Love that there are so many sizes!
Very cute bag. I love the design and that there are many variations and sizes. A few of the directions were a bit unclear and I had to re-read several times before understanding.
Every one of the Aivilo bags I've purchased has wonderful style, great instructions and a reasonable price. I've purchased quite a few of them and still look forward for more releases. This one is just a cut above the competition!
Simple quick bag with lots of room for personalizing. Great as a gift for teachers, etc. Good size for books and supplies, etc.
This was an easy pattern to follow, and I like that it comes in varying sizes. I unfortunately underestimated the size I needed, so made my bag too small, but that is my fault and not the pattern. I will be makin gmore of these in varying sizes - I am hoping that the largest size will be a good beach tote!
This bag is awesome. I have been making them as end of year Teacher gifts and I think the teachers are starting to fight over my sons now, LOL. Easy to put together and change up the size to whatever you want.
This is really a great pattern. It goes together so smoothly. The directions are very clear. I have made three of these bags already and have plans on making more. Thanks for such a great pattern.
A friend and I made bags together this past week. This pattern is fun and easy to make. You can be creative with your own fabric and design choice for your own bag. Have fun sewing!
This pattern is easy to follow and the finished tote is amazingly cute! I've made 2 already and adjusted the size of the second one (which was easy to do). I love these totes. Highly recommend this ebook as the directions are easy to follow with great pictures too!
Great pattern for beginners! I am new to sewing, and I made the small size for my 6 year old daughter. The directions are well written and easy to follow. I have plans to make 2 more in the large size for myself and my teenager. I highly recommend this pattern :)
I just made this bag over the weekend, and it turned out great the first time! I had a questions, and emailed the author, she got back to me in a day, and had the answer i was looking for! I plan on making many more bags for my friends, they all loved it! Thank you!!!! <3 :)
A great pattern. Easy to follow instructions and the final product makes you look like a pro
