Swoon Ethel Tote Bag FREE Sewing Pattern and Tutorial

Swoon Ethel Tote Bag Free Sewing Pattern

A roomy, sturdy and stylish open tote bag. With a teardrop shape, Ethel veers away from the usual boxy tote. It's a “stuff it in and run out the door” kind of bag, designed to comfortably sling over your shoulder. There are a few slip pockets for the small things.

What you'll need:

  • 1 yard fusible (or sew-in) foam interfacing (Pellon Flex-Foam FF78F1)
  • 3/4 yard 44″ wide quilting weight lining fabric
  • 2/3 yard 44″ wide quilting weight exterior fabric
  • Coordinating thread
  • 1/4 yard fusible stabilizer (Pellon Peltex 71F)
  • 3 yards 20″ wide fusible woven interfacing (Pellon Shapeflex SF101)

    Love this! Have you ever used double sided quilted material, or would that even work with this?

    • Mayra says:

      Hi Sharon, sorry for the late reply. I’m not sure about your question since I didn’t design this particular pattern. Perhaps give it a shot and see how you go. Please do let us know how it turns out.

    Thanks again

    I love the fabric, where do you find such a gem?

    • Mayra says:

      Hi Carla, I really like that one too. Perhaps best to ask the pattern designer on her Craftsy page. Unfortunately, I don’t know where this comes from, but the designer most certainly will. Can you please share the answer here if you learn something?

  4. Karen says:

    Can you share a source for the fabric?

    This is exactly what I have been searching for on the internet for the last 2 weeks! Thank you so much! I needed a bag pattern that would have room inside, show off a printed fabric piece, and would not be too difficult to make and THIS IS IT!
