How to make a Kids Cabrio Tote

Recently, I had a Sew Spoiled seamstress ask how to make a kid version of the Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote.
Here is my first attempt, made with just a few minor changes to the Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote ePattern.
If you own the pattern you can use it to make these adorable totes! These two totes are for a 9 year old and a 5 year old.

First, gather your supplies and then cut out the following…
Cut 2 Tops (same using template)
Cut 2 Bottom (same using template)
Cut 2 rectangles measuring 9”X18”
Cut 2 straps 28” for small child, 30” for medium and 32” for older child X 4” wide
Cut 2 Loops 4”X 5.5” (smaller)
Cut 2 pockets the same size
Cut 2 Lining templates, use the temple in the Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote Pattern and cut off 3.5” from the bottom.

Sew these pieces together as if you were sewing an adult size tote. Follow the directions in the pattern.

When you are sewing the pockets, place the pockets 3” from the bottom of the lining.

If you give this a try please upload your photos to Flickr: your Sew Spoiled projects!
