Scrappy Pocket Tote Bag Tutorial

Hi everyone! I have a super fun bag tutorial for you today. This one looks fancy, but it’s really quite easy to make! I’m calling it the Scrappy Pocket Tote Bag. It’s about 14” wide by 13” tall when done and has a total of 4 pockets! It’s a great size project bag for knitting, crochet, or even carrying books, a laptop, etc.



So let’s get started shall we?

Watch my Scrappy Pocket Tote Bag Tutorial video tutorial below, and make sure to grab the PDF download with all of the cutting instructions too!

For the front of my tote I used this super cute 6.5” Scrappy Desert Cactus block from Burlap and Blossom Patterns. If you haven’t checked out her store yet, definitely do! She has some of the cutest block patterns I’ve seen!



The backside has a fun zipper pocket that looks difficult, but is super easy to install! I also added this fun scrappy patchwork section for the zipper pocket. I used a mix of Lori Holt fabrics for this bag and I think it made the bag so fun and colorful!



To see how to sew together the patchwork section check out my Patchwork Quilting tutorial here!



The inside has two simple pockets great for storing pens and pencils, or knitting needles and accessories! The inside is also a great size to house your knitting or crochet projects!



I hope you enjoy this fun tote bag tutorial! If you make this bag please make sure to tag me on social media and use #scrappypockettote so I can see what you create!
