Buy the Genoa Tote sewing pattern from Pattern Fantastique. Designed with denim in mind, the Genoa Tote borrows its name from the Italian city where the first denim trousers were made. The Genoa Tote is fully lined and features a zipped pouch and a clip for keys. The leather straps can be made in two lengths and two widths, and are attached with double capped rivets, creating beauty, strength and longevity.
