Rio Convertible Tote Pattern - PDF Download
The Rio Convertible Tote is a pattern for a soft and slouchy style tote that can be worn three ways! Backpack, in your hand, or crossbody.
The pattern was designed for quilting cotton and has options for cork or vinyl and can be made on a domestic sewing machine! Don't hesitate to experiment with Harris Tweed, Canvas, or Denim to make this bag your very own! The cover pattern bags feature an embroidery design from ByPiera of the Golden Girls! Who doesn't want to have a squad like those ladies?
The bag has one zipper compartment on the outside, to hold your valuables. You will also find an interior zipper pocket, to help keep you organized. The bag is turned at the end through the zipper pocket, so the turning gap is well hidden. Once done, you will be styling with this bag by folding the sides to the front or middle and carrying it as a backpack or handbag, OR leave the sides out and hook on your crossbody strap to carry it as a crossbody tote.
11” tall x 2” deep and 14” wide at the bottom

Your pattern comes in a PDF downloadable format filled with diagrams to walk you through the creation of your bag. All curved pattern pieces are included in your file, although the rectangles have measurements provided within your cutting list to cut with a ruler and rotary cutter.
The embroidery design on the cover photo is NOT included but can be found here: ByPiera
