Portland Tote

Originally released alongside the Sewing Society Kit in December 2023, this video contains exclusive hints and tips for making the Sotak Patterns Portland Tote.

This video is perfect if you already own a copy of the Portland sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

This video doesn't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely bag.

The video has over 37 minutes of footage, sectioned out with time stamps/chapters for easy reference and navigation.

The key construction steps are covered, including how to work with dry wax cotton, how to deal with bulky fabric, how to install magnetic snaps and use hardware, how to sew a zip pocket, how to sew a recessed zip opening and much more!

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. The Portland Tote PDF pattern is available directly from the Sotak Patterns website.
