Tahoe Tote - Wichita

Tahoe Tote

Julia Waterbury


“Tahoe Tote” by Pink Sand Beach Designs”


See pattern requirements.

Pattern is fat quarter friendly.

I usually make my totes out of full fabric width.

Batting & Interfacing

Soft & stable or similar batting (This replaces the fleece in the pattern)

A bag of soft & stable will make more than one tote.

Interfacing for pocket

Décor Bond & Peltex – optional/required if you want a firm bottom on your bag.

Soft & stable gives the bag lots of body

Basic Sewing Supplies

Cutting Mat



Ruler (6” X 24”)

Ruler (4” x 4”) optional

Seam Ripper

Fabric marking Pen or pencil


Tape measure

Clover clips (optional)

Sewing Machine in Good Working Order

Quarter Inch foot

Walking Foot (Strongly recommended)

Additional Class Tips


Cutting pattern changes (optional)

I usually cut pieces C, D & E as one piece

Piece C: 12.5” x 22.5”

Piece D: 2.5” x 34.0 “

Piece E: 1.5” x 34.0”


I usually sew the outside of the bag together prior to cutting the soft & stable. Measure the height & width of the bag. Add 1”’ to the height measurement & 2.0” to the width measurement of the outside of the bag


Measure the outside bag height & width. The pattern recommends the lining is .5” shorter than the bag height.

Lining width (cut 2); (Outside bag width divided by 2) +.5” for seam allowance


I prefer to make the pockets in one piece

Cut 2 – 10.5” x 17” fabric

Cut 2 – 5” x 17” interfacing (optional)
