Footloose Tote in Doctor Who Fabric

The Footloose Tote came out as a video course earlier this year, but it now is also being offered as a pdf pattern on ChrisW Designs site. So if you want to make this tote and don't need video instructions you can buy the pdf only. And if you are a subscriber to ChrisW Designs newsletter you can get 20% off new releases for a limited time; so sign up to get Christine's newsletter and be alerted to the new releases and get a discount code.

I just finished testing this tote yesterday and following the pdf was just as easy for me as the video course (I tested the Footloose video course too). This time I chose a Dr. Who fabric. (The other two totes I made was in a sailboat fabric and a Southwest fabric). 

I really love this style tote and it is perfect for showcasing a nice fabric. I opted not to add the add on adjustable strap, but if you want to add it, the instructions tell you how. The front features a vertical zipper pocket that you can add to the right or left side of the tote, which is a handy place for a phone or keys. Inside is a zippered pocket and a divided slip pocket. The bottom has purse feet to keep the bottom clean. You need minimum hardware to make this bag. I added strap ends and rivets to my strap, but you can also just sew the straps as per the instructions.

This bag measures 15” W X 13” H X 5” D

Dr. Who fabric with the swirling Tardis kind of looks like Van Gogh's Starry Night painting, doesn't it?

A divided slip pocket inside.

A zippered pocket and a special label.

I did add a magnetic snap, which is optional. As Dr. Who fans would say, "It's bigger on the inside".

Front zipper pocket.

Photographing it on different backgrounds for fun. Do you have a favorite background?

Bottom has purse feet (hard to see because they are antique brass. Also stabilizer is on the bottom and stitched. (You can stitch the bottom any way you desire. My first Footloose totes I stitched in wavy lines).
