Noodlehead Pepin Tote Paper Pattern
The Pepin is a classic and elegant tote bag that has enough room for all the essentials plus a few extras. It's easy to sew and comes with a few optional enclosures. The Pepin works well with a canvas as the outer fabric and a midweight cotton as the lining. The outside pocket can be made in the same outer fabric or it can be a fun contrast for a pop of creativity.
