Too cute! The Mini Colleen tote is fairly similar to our “Colleen: Large mesh window tote” but uses less fabric, has an extra pocket and includes an infinity handle! Maybe you just have less stuff to carry around, or you’re looking to use up some scrap fabric–either way, the Mini Colleen tote is perfect for a casual day at the beach or that last minute grab and go shopping trip.
Using some extra fabric, you can create a drawstring cuff and a self or contrasting lining at the bottom of the bag. These steps are very similar to our other bag, but are slightly more advanced. This tote is absolutely perfect for hikes or bumpy rides where you don’t want anything spilling out of your tote!
We’ve got a great, simple tutorial for you that shows you three different ways to sew the classic tote. Try out the “Colleen” style tote for those full day trips to the lake or beach, or one of our other 2 bag designs. You don’t need a pattern to make any of these bags either! Just follow the cutting instructions below to make the perfect tote every time.

Includes the free downloadable pattern! Now, I’ve never sewn a stuffed animal let alone made a stuffed animal pattern, but I think it turned out pretty darn cute.
