    looking for a pattern for a specific tote

    I am searching but I suspect I am using the wrong keywords.

    I want a pattern for a flat bottom tote that has a hinged frame top, like a doctors bag or a Mary Poppin bag.

    I am finding little purse sized totes but not the size I want and I am not confident enough to resize a pattern. I also want the pattern so I don't screw up putting the frame in.

    99.5 of you won't know what I mean, but I want it to make a bag for my toy sized dog's obedience scent articles, that will stay open when set on the floor and opened. It will be part mesh for ventilation, and I really want to make a creative and personalized bag.

    If anyone knows of a pattern that would work and could direct me to it that would be great!

    You might find one by Googling carpetbag pattern?

    Use the basic pattern and make the sides and ends equally taller
