Basic Leather Tote Bag Acrylic Template Set
::: UPDATE! :::
This is an updated version of the old Basic Tote Bag. Lets call it Tote 2.0. Long story short I had to re-work the size of the template in order to keep offering it as a stock item. Tote 2.0 is slightly smaller all around but still plenty spacious as far as tote bags go. Please note the size difference in the product description.
Greetings! Please read all of the following information below before ordering this product. If you have any questions at all please contact us.
The Basic Tote Bag acrylic template set is here! The one piece body panel comes in a "flip-able half" that has grid holes marked for aligning straps quickly. Trace one side (except the bottom!), flip the template in place, and trace the other to complete your one piece tote design. This template style allows for more compact storage in your workshop and greatly helps reduce shipping costs.
The updated Tote Template Set now includes an optional to use large pocket. You can add this pocket to one side, both sides, inside or outside. The set comes with a 1" wide strap end template with a round end and a curved english point end.
Updated Basic Tote Finished Dimensions: 15" wide x 12" tall x 5" deep
Old Basic Tote Finished dimensions: 21" wide x 14" tall x 6" deep
Tote bags are always a great product to add to your shop or to make for family and friends. Use this acrylic template set to radically decrease your construction process and increase your accuracy. Leather is expensive and mistakes on large bag projects are costly!
Included in this template set:
- Main body panel - This piece will create your tote bag body. Please remember this template will be half of your complete design. You need to flip and align to trace complete the other side. This will be covered thoroughly in the DIY instructions if you need assistance. Tote body panel also comes with strap alignment grid holes to mark through the template. This allows you to place the straps anywhere you want and keep them straight.
- Large Pocket (optional) - Use the suggested alignment holes on the tote body to add a large pocket to your tote. Great for storing smaller items like cell phones, wallets, keys, etc.
- Strap end template - You will also receive a strap end template to fashion your tote straps. Holes are cut out of the center for easy rivet alignment. Use rivets, stitching, or both to customize your finished product.
