Buy the Mule Tote sewing pattern from Kylie & The Machine. Your new favourite tote bag features enclosed seams and can be made in a standard or maxi size – or both! The standard size makes a great shopping tote, and the maxi size is perfect as a beach bag. The Mule Tote is a fun and practical project for new and experienced sewists alike.

Hack: The original pattern uses flat felled seams. Additional instructions (and a print-at-home corner template) are now included for alternative seam finishes that can be used to construct the bag more quickly. This means you have more fabric options too, like upholstery weight fabrics and heavy canvas (which would be too thick for the flat felled seam method).

This sewing pattern is available to buy in the following formats:

– PDF (available to download immediately after purchase). What is a PDF?

– PDF pattern + Printed A0 copy shop (We print out the A0 pattern sheets, but you’ll need to download the digital instructions, as we don’t print these. The PDF files will be emailed immediately after purchase, and the A0 pattern sheets will be dispatched next working day). What is Copy Shop?

Note if purchasing copy shop printing: The copy shop pattern doesn’t include the corner template for the hack (print-at-home only, 1 page).
