Hapai Tote PDF Pattern - Handmade Vegan Cork Fabric Bags

This is a nice basic pattern for beginners or even advanced bag makers. I have two sizes. The full size Hapai (beach bag size) and the Mini (handbag size)  Embellish and alter the Hapai to your heart’s desire. The large open panel gives plenty of space for applique, embroidery, or anything you’d like to create. Hapai Details Finished size 15" tall x 19" wide and 5" deep 1 outside pocket 2 inside pockets Zipper closure across the top Mini Hapai Details Finished size 11" tall by 15" wide 3" deep 1 outside pocket 2 inside pockets Zipper closure across the top Materials Main Fabric  ¾ Yard I like to use canvas or cork fabric. Any mid to heavy weight material will work. If you use a lighter weight fabric like quilting cotton, use fusible fleece to add some body. Accent & Base Quarter (16”x20”) This should be a similar or heavier weight fabric than your main fabric. Ideal for cork, vinyl, or leather. Lining ¾ Yard I use a mid-weight duck canvas. If you use a lighter weight cotton fabric, use something like Pellon SF101 to add body. Notions 20” Zipper (17” for the mini) 48” of 1” wide 100% cotton webbing Zipper end (optional) HUGE MAHALO – THANK YOU Katherine Everdina Fay – Huff and Cuff Patterns, for helping me to get this pattern made. She created all the diagrams.
