This medium-size tote has lots of room for storage thanks to the depth of the boxed corners. The addition of pockets makes this bag very functional for students, professionals, light travel, or everyday use. The Beginner Tote has been designed with similar steps as the Quilted Pouches so you become more comfortable with the process. With this project, build skills in fabric preparation, creating a front zipper pocket, attaching handles, easily installing a zipper, assembling the bag, and adding optional embellishments.

Hey Bagmakers!  We are updating our policy when it comes to fulfilling orders.  As we continue to work towards shortening turnaround times and getting products to our loyal customers quicker, we are making the following changes to our ordering policies.  

We will no longer be able to combine orders due to the speed of processing and orders being in different parts of the fulfillment process.
Additionally, we can not guarantee that we will add to orders that have been submitted.  Please make sure you double check your cart before submitting your orders.  
We look forward to these changes making us more efficient as we continue to grow and offer you a better shopping experience!

Who we are

sallie tomato

Hello, my name is Jessica Barrera and I'm the Founder of Sallie Tomato. I originally opened my shop in 2014 during college. I began by selling items that I had sewn myself. It wasn’t until 2016 that I released my first pattern, the Puppy Pillow. Now, my passion is to design quality sewing patterns, so you can create too!


Sallie Tomato provides sewing patterns, purse hardware, handbag zippers, cork fabric, and select sewing supplies for bag making.


The name of my shop developed around my middle name, Sallie.  Also, the tomato pin cushion is a well-recognized symbol of sewing.  Thank you for visiting my website!
