This listing is for PDF pattern to make the bag, not the actual bag!

This is a handy tool bucket to take your work outside with you, whether you want to sit on the beach or just in a park, this is an easy way to carry all your essentials. This roomy bucket has 9 pockets outside and one inner zippered pocket for all the small bits and pieces. You can make a longer strap to carry it on your shoulder!

Size: approx. 14" tall, 10" diameter.


I made the body of 3-4 oz chrome tanned leather and the pocket section is made of 5.5 oz. I would recommend softer leather for both parts, and definitely 5.5 oz for pocket section is an overkill. It would be more suitable to use something a little stretchy. Using 3-4 oz leather for the whole bag (except the straps and bottom, those have to be made of 5-6 oz thick stuff) will also reduce its weight which is good. The inner pocket can be made out of whatever, use your scraps :) You will also need a piece of rope or a thick lace for the drawstring.


2 x 1” swivel hooks
2 x 1” D-rings
1 x 7.5” zipper


Scissors, knife (paper knife or rotary cutter would also work).
Stitching irons: my pattern is made for 5mm stitching irons (5 stitches per inch). If you
are willing to use any other size please make sure that the hole count is the same where
it has to be the same.
Needles - according to your thread size, a pair of harness needles.
Mallet, hole punches, rivet setter.

Pattern is designed for hand stitching.
Comes with written instructions.

The pattern has stitching holes marked for 5 SPI stitching irons (5 stitches per inch, or approximately 5.2 mm). 5 mm stitching irons made by metric system sometimes fit, sometimes they don’t (depending on manufacturer). If you have 5 mm irons and the spacing seems a tad too large for them you can print the pattern at 96.2% scale. I advise to print one page and try your irons to see how they fit before printing the entire pattern.

Formats: A4 and USLetter.
