Take A Stand Tote



Stand-up totes in two sizes have an easy-to-install zippered top that opens wide for easy access to the contents.

Each Take A Stand tote features an adjustable, detachable carrying strap and plenty of room for supplies and more.

Two zippered pockets on the outside of the tote and two inner mesh pockets keep everything organized and easy to view.

Small: 8-3/4"H x 12"W x 6-1/2"D

Large: 12-1/2"H x 16"W x 8"D

The small Take A Stand tote make a perfect stand for the Tool Case in our Running With Scissors pattern. Just fold the Tool Case over so that the inner pockets are exposed. Place the Tool Case "billboard-style" over the upright tote. You'll love the stability and easy access to all your supplies. The large tote will hold the Running With Scissors Tool Case and/or fabric, tools, and more.
