Totally Totebag

Back in the Fall of 2010, a friend asked me if I could create a file for cutting with our electronic cutters based on the "Totally Totebag" instructions and pattern posted on the Splitcoaststampers.com website by Leigh O'Brien. I did and shared it on my old blog. I'm sharing it again here in case you missed it back then! (It was also used last year on one of the MTC forums challenge threads!) You can find Leigh's directions and information on the Splitcoasterstamper's site here. You can also find it on Leigh's blog "Sunflowerstudio" along with more cute ideas and projects. The picture above only shows the "rough draft" of the totebag I cut and put together to make sure that it cut out and assembled properly. To see more (and prettier) photos of assembled projects check the splitcoasstampers site here. Thanks Leigh for sharing.

You can download my .mtc file for use with MTC here or you can download my .svg file for use with other software packages and your cutters.

The finished bag measures: heigh:t 2 3/4", width: 3 3/4", and the depth: 1 1/2". It is just right to use as a gift card holder or a little snack or small treat. Thanks for stopping by. Would love to see what you create with the file!


  1. I saw a tote similar to this recently, and wished I knew how to make a file for one. Thanks! Great timing!

  2. Thank you for doing this, I have just started working with my gazelle and designing is just not so easy for me yet. I appreciate you doing this and sharing in svg format! Thank you!

  3. Thanks for this file. It looks lovely!

  4. thanks, can't wait to put this together.
