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.

    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.
