{Cabôtin} Free tote bag pattern

0 Flares Facebook 0 Twitter 0 0 Flares ×

To celebrate Sacôtin’s first birthday, here is Cabôtin : a free tote bag pattern!

I wanted to give you a timeless classic, cleverly constructed to minimize the number of pattern pieces and still get a clean finish!

A word about the name of this pattern as this is a French play on words : tote is “cabas” in French so cabas + Sacôtin = Cabôtin.

Cabotin (without the accent) also means something in French, it could be translated as “show off” when speaking of a person… but in a cute way ;).

Cabôtin is a large and versatile tote bag, easily customizable to make it show your signature style for any occasion.

A perfect canvas to showcase a texture, a beautiful print or express your creativity with appliqué or embroideries !

A bias trim brings contrast to the upper edge and handles.
