The Costa Tote is perfect for everyday errands and shopping. It includes a lining, making it fully reversible! View A features an asymmetrical pocket design with dividing lines that create a total of four pockets. These pockets are specifically designed for your keys, phone, or sunglasses; a secure storage place for your belongings that doesn’t gape open. You can sport your pockets on the outside or the inside, your choice!

The Costa Tote is very special to me (Chloe), because it is the first pattern that I have designed for Helen’s Closet! It is so exciting to start with an idea and make it come to life. Also, I learned that pattern design is really fun and creatively fulfilling.

When I was brainstorming what I wanted for Costa, my goal was to create a useful and versatile tote bag with an easy, modern aesthetic. I am so pleased with how it turned out.

The Costa Tote looks great! I love the pockets. Definitely going to be making up some of these for shopping bags with some leftover fabrics, a great stash buster and colour block project. Thanks!
