This tote is all about hands-free hauling!

The Nest Egg tote started with a desire for a cross-body-style bag that could be used not only for a purse, but also for carrying some sewing necessities. (In fact, I’ve made multiple versions for each purpose!)
I liked the idea of a round, graphic shape that could open up flat, so there’s a zipper that runs the entire side and then a hinge at the bottom to hold it all together. Inside, I played around with a couple of different ways to hold things. On one side are elastic bands, and on the other are two big pockets.
