This is the full tutorial for The Kensley Tote by Sew Your Patterns. I made my handbag using marine vinyl and home decor canvas.
This bag features shoulder straps, a large exterior front pocket and a interior zipper pocket. This tote also has some additional features that you can add on to the tote. This includes the option to add an adjustable crossbody strap, a back exterior zipper pocket or an interior slip pocket . You can choose to add a magnetic snap or a recessed zipper closure. I originally wanted to adda recessed zipper however I got carried away with sewing that I totally forgot and skipped over it. 🤭 Thats okay though it totally happens and actually works out since it allows my MacBook Pro to actually fit in the Tote.
