The Professional Tote pattern
The Professional Tote, designed by Laura Martell for The Creative Thimble has all the pockets and compartments needed for today’s world (approximate finished dimensions 18 in. wide x 15 in. tall x 5 in. deep). Whether you work in an office or not, this tote has it all. There is a pleated pocket on each side of the tote to hold a bottle of water, umbrella, magazine, baby bottle or telephone. Also, on the front is a zippered pocket to hold your ID and Passport for your airport travel. Behind that pocket is one for your boarding pass. On the backside is one large pocket for a newspaper. On the inside, there is a large center dividing zippered pocket that holds file folders. There is plenty of room inside for a laptop computer. Several pockets are inside for your business cards, keys, pens, phone, and more. To finish it off, there is a zipper that will close tight to keep the contents secure. The Professional Tote would also make a wonderful sewing/crafting tote with a place for patterns or books, fabrics, notions, canvases, brushes, paints and more. And let’s not forget about the “professional” diaper bag, with a pocket for all the baby’s needs!
