  1. I watched this tote being made on your program today 2/15/16, the host of the show said the pattern for this tote was available on the web site, I am on your web site not and do not see how to get the pattern. The hostess made a comment that you would need the pattern explaining everything that you had to do to make this tote but I don’t see how to get the pattern or instruction. Is a pattern and instruction available. I believe she also said you could get it for free.

    1. I made a similar tote bag. I used a piece of plexiglas. I cut it the size of the bottom of the bag and made a pocket out of the lining fabric to cover it. I also taped the edges of the Plexiglas before putting it in the pocket to prevent rips in the fabric. Your local big box home improvement store might cut a piece to size for you. They also have a product called OPTIX that might work.
