Maywood Lightweight Pocket Expansion PDF

Add a lightweight fabric pocket to the Maywood Totepack!


These PDF instructions will teach you how to add a lightweight exterior pocket to the Maywood Totepack. You'll learn how to give your pocket added structure and adjust the pattern so the bottom of your bag remains durable waxed canvas. This expansion is designed to be used in tandem with the main Maywood Totepack pattern. Helpful signposts will guide your making path, letting you know when it’s time to transition from one set of instructions to the other. 

NOTE: Limited Edition Kits with Warp + Weft Fabric already include these expansion instructions, so no need to purchase separately if making from a kit.

At Klum House, we pride ourselves in creating patterns that are thoughtful, holistic, and easy-to-follow. We want you to feel fully-supported at every step of your making journey. This is what you can expect to encounter:

Clear Instructions - We are teachers, first and foremost, and as such we know that clear language is so important. We are dedicated to crafting simple, easy-to-follow instructions, so you can forge ahead with confidence.

Helpful Tips + Cautions - Your instructions booklet will be peppered with helpful tips, reminders, and caution moments. We know all of the most common mistakes (because we’ve made them!) and point them out so you can avoid them.

Excellent Illustrations - Our patterns are filled with helpful, technically-precise illustrations. We makers are visual learners! With 3D renderings and transparent layers, we’ll help you conceptualize every stitch, flip, and fold.

Specialty Education - Bag making is different from other types of sewing. It involves working with heavy-duty fabrics, leather, hardware, and tools you may not have encountered before. But don’t worry, our patterns break it all down.

Multiple Making Paths - Whether you choose to make from a fully-prepped maker kit, a leather + hardware kit, or “from scratch,” our patterns are designed to guide you along your chosen path to guarantee a successful make!


In addition to the standard list of supplies needed to make the Maywood Totepack, you’ll also need:

  • 1/2 yard lightweight (4–6 oz) pocket fabric-weight
  • 1/2 yard pocket lining fabric (medium weight cotton or twill)
  • 1/2 yard Heat n Bond® Iron-on Adhesive
  • 1/4 yard waxed canvas pocket extension fabric (should match main exterior bag fabric)
