Huff 'n Cuffs Sewing Patterns

Maija Tote

Regular price $9.00

Two Patterns in One!

The Maija Tote includes TWO versions! 

The diagonal zipper pocket with the middle feature panel is the FIRST version. It also comes with the pattern piece to do the feature panel without the zipper pocket.
The SECOND version features a horizontal zipper pocket one side and a large slip pocket on the other side.


From now till 30th November 2017, every purchase will receive one free entry to win the Indigenous and Hemp Fabric Maija Tote on the front cover of the pattern. Entry is open worldwide and includes shipping!

Both versions are perfect for that large print you want to showcase. Pattern is written for quilting weight cotton but can easily be made in other fabrics such as vinyl, decor weight or even cork. 

The Maija Tote is a medium to large bag with plenty of pockets; instructions include interior slip pockets and a zipper pocket. Instructions include turning through the zipper pocket. When you purchase the pattern, you will receive a digital zipped file which includes a very detailed pattern with text and diagrams, a photo tutorial and pattern pieces in letter size. As an extra, I’ve also added the larger pattern pieces in A3 size.

The Maija Tote may seem a little daunting to the beginner bag maker, but don't despair. Huff 'n Cuffs has a great Facebook group where you can ask for help any time of the day or night, or email me at and I will get back to you as soon as possible and guide you through the process.
