Round Tote Bag Pattern
The round tote bag pattern is finally here and I can tell you, this adorable canvas bag pattern will become your go-to bag, comes summer time (but works just as great in any season, if done in season appropriate colors)! This tote bag pattern makes a great, super roomy canvas tote bag, perfect for carrying all your important stuff but it could also be an awesome beach tote or a wonderful gift idea (think Mother’s day!).
I know the world might not need another tote bag pattern but this round tote bag comes with a twist: a cool, rounded top! And not to mention this is a super sturdy bag! This round tote bag pattern is made with canvas for both the exterior and interior. And I also used very stiff interfacing which you can order here if you like to make a similar bag. It does make sewing and turning the bag right side out a little difficult so I wouldn’t recommend this type of interfacing to beginners.

While this round tote bag pattern may look like a simple tote, the fabric choice, the rounded shape at the top and the stiff interfacing will make this bag truly stand out! And have I mentioned its got corded handles? You can find the corded handles tutorial here. If you are not very familiar with sewing with canvas you’ll find these canvas tips very handy.
This round tote bag pattern is not a beginners project but I wouldn’t call it intermediate either, it’s somewhere in between these, so a little experience in sewing bags, using interfacing, a zipper foot and heavy duty fabric are a plus.
Something I’ve learned while making this canvas tote bag pattern, that you should keep in mind if you plan to make one too: if you’re using the same interfacing as I did which is super stiff, it’s best to fuse it up to the seam allowance so when you sew the bag pieces together, your needle will only have to go through the fabric, not the interfacing, making your project much easier.
Features of the rounded top bag:
- Unusual rounded top design
- Corded handles in same fabric to match the bag
- Super stiff interfacing
- Easy boxing method
- Roomy inside (with enough space for several internal pocket options)
- Roomy enough to carry a tablet or even a small laptop but smart enough to use as a purse!
- Bright colors (mustard and nautical stripes)
