The Amalfi Tote is quite large finishing to about 17.5" wide X 14" tall X 6" deep. The top is secured with a zipper so all your treasures are kept safe. It has an exterior front slip pocket (mine is secured with a flip lock). Inside is another nice sized zipper pocket and a divided slip pocket. It has room for books, files folders, your laptop and tablet, and even some clothes. Elegant enough for the office and yet casual enough for everyday, it is very stylish and classic.
I chose to make my test bag in designer leathers in burgundy and black with a sturdy home decorator fabric interior. I found the Amalfi Tote to be both a fun and a fairly quick sew. The pattern has directions for leather as well as faux leather or fabric. It is a pattern that can be done by all levels of sewers. It is well written and easy to follow with lots of illustrations.
