Heavy and Mini Hauler Tote Bag pattern by Two Pretty Poppets

Now released is the next pattern from Two Pretty Poppets - The Heavy Hauler Tote Bag - which you can make as a large or mini bag

First up, here is the large version - designed to carry large loads - the strong handles go all the way under the outer pocket, across the bottom and back up the other side - making it suitable to carry bottles of water, or, as I am reliably informed THREE bottles of wine! Now, that'd be a great picnic!!
You could also use it to carry heavy folders to work, or books to the library and you can even fit a laptop in!

There are frames that support the opening of the bag, they add structure, and hold the bag open so you can load it up.

The bag comes together beautifully and the instructions have lots of helpful pictures that make it really easy to follow along with the steps.

Next, here is the mini version - still a strong sturdy bag, just for a slightly smaller load! The stitched grab handles add a really cute detail!

I decided to make mine as a lunch bag, so I used laminated cotton for the outer fabric and used PUL for the lining, so the bag is completely waterproof.

This time I left the optional pocket off the outside, and made a slight modification to the lining to make a simple little slip pocket - this is somewhere I can pop an ice pack, and there is even a little slot for some cutlery!

The pattern is available NOW at a special release price of $4.50 USD but only for a limited time.
