Here's your new summer bag....

The Double Duty Screen Tote

This bag is multifunctional.  It can be used with the drawstring insert for added security (so others can't see what's in your bag) or you can use the screen bag by itself and it is just as cute!  Also, the drawstring insert can be used by itself or with the bag.  So many options with this cutie!!   That's why I'm calling it The Double Duty Screen Tote Bag.  

This bag is a great beginner bag and can easily be made in a few hours.  

Completed size of tote bag is approximately 15” wide x 10 1/2” tall, 6"” deep  


Flower Applique Monogram is offered in the follow formats only:


This adorable flower applique monogram comes with all 26 letters in tact so there is no need to try and center the monogram in the flower own your own.  Plus, I've included a blank flower just in case you want to use your own monogram.  Nice thing about this is that you can use this flower applique monogram on other projects too!  What a bonus!! 

Of course you'll need screen to make this adorable bag!!  Click HERE to see all the pretty colors of pet screen shown in the pictures (and many more) and to purchase some of your very own so you can begin making your own Double Duty Screen Tote Bag.  NOTE:  The Double Duty Screen Tote does require more than a roll of screen.  If you purchase 3 rolls, you can make 2 Double Duty bags and a Screen Cosmetic Bag to match using my free tutorial.  

I used one of my favorite notions to make this bag, called the Clover Wide Bodkin.  It really helps in pulling the cording through the channels.  I now have this notion available in my Supplies/Kits section at a discounted price.  Click HERE to learn more.  

To purchase this pattern, simply add it to your cart and checkout through Paypal.  There will be an email to follow with download instructions.  Instant gratification!
