Store and carry all of your favorite sewing or project tools with this portable tote created especially for kids!

This PDF project plan includes instructions for building a lightweight, easy-to-carry tote from 1/2-inch PVC pipe. In addition to the tote frame, instructions include pattern pieces and step-by-step photos to guide the confident beginning sewist through construction of the fabric storage area at the base of the tote.

Options include a separate base insert to lend stability, as well as a sewn-in, "invisible" version for the more advanced sewist. Features include six exterior pockets with elasticized openings to help keep all of your smaller items safely tucked away until you need them.

Tillie's Tool Tote makes a great gift, especially if you fill it with tools and supplies for your favorite little crafter!
