Default Shoulder bag/tote

I have received this bag for a Christmas present from a friend. It was admired at church today and some ladies asked me if I could help them make one. I haven’t got a pattern, how is the bag really called and would someone please be able to direct me if somewhere on the Board there is a tutorial. Thanks a lot!!!

is there a picture of it? or are you looking for just any shoulder/tote bag?

Check out the bags at so-sew-easy.com, or sew4free.com, or craftsy.com for many styles and many free. You will be able to download the PDF and print the patterns from your computer. I have many and they are easy to construct.. I'm making a "swoonethel" right now for a friend who gave me fabric.

Have a chat with Mr. Google, and he will help you find just what you want.
There are literally thousands, or perhaps I should say millions, of free bag patterns on the web.
Take a good look around at them, as some are easier and simpler to make than others.
yet look much the same!

Thank you very much for all your help !!! In the meantime I have found out the bag is called a boho bag and found quite a few good tutorials on YouTube ❤️

Boho bags are so cool. I made one for myself when I refused to pay the prices for a new purse. It is not a tote bag size, though. It was a free pattern on someone's blog.
