Free pattern: City Tote handbag

Martina from Confessions of a Sewing Addict is searching for the perfect handmade bag, and is creating a series of blog posts detailing her attempts at making different styles.  The City Tote is the second handbag style in the series.  I love the little scarf tied around one of the handles!  Get the scoop about this bag and download a free pattern.

She’s also giving away the bag she made to a lucky reader.  Deadline is Thursday, February 25, 2010.  See her blog for entry details.

    Would love to make this purse. Very cute, but can’t read whatever language it’s written in. Is is in English anywhere?!!!!!

    What are the bag dimensions? I printed the pattern, but I don’t know how much I need to enlarge the pattern pieces?

      I don’t know what the actual dimensions of the finished bag are, but unless the directions tell you to enlarge the pattern I would assume you would just print at 100% size. There are some pieces that are bigger than a standard ppiece of paper and you’ll need to tape them together, but those places are noted in the pattern.
