I just printed up the patttern! It looks beautiful, the photos are great and the directions are so clear.
Can't wait to make a Cabrio, just have to find worthy fabric in my stash. =)
Thank you so much!

I can not wait to make this bag! Just downloaded hot off the press. ^-^

Okay, I have two questions!

1) Where the heck are you all buying this pattern? I can't figure it out - I think I've looked everywhere, but I'm not seeing it listed at all.

2) Leah, do you ever make bags and then sell them? The reason I ask is that my mother is going on a cruise in March and this bag would be perfect for her off-boat excursions. Unfortunately, even if I figure out WHERE to buy the pattern, I'm a new seamstress and not sure I could pull it off in time for Mom to leave!

Any help?

Hi Meredith, It's at Choose "sellers" using the pull down menu to the right of the orange "Etsy" logo, and then type in "SewSpoiled" with no spaces. It will bring up the store.

Wow! I am so glad that everyone is just as excited about this tote as I am!!
In all of the excitement, I forgot to post where the Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote ePattern can be found. You can find it at

Also, I found a great place to buy fold over elastic (FOE) online at The FOE is for the elastic interior pockets.
Meredith, I think your Mom would a tote you made her. You could do a much better job than me, since you know her so well. If you need any extra help you can always email me and I can help you through any step.

Thanks everyone for the great comments!

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Leah. I'm still not so sure I can get it done fast enough for her trip given my toddler's sense of curiosity when the machine comes out - but I'm certainly tempted!
