This pattern includes step-by-step directions how to sew a fully lined, canvas Tote Bag with an outer pocket and a reinforced bottom, including full cutting dimensions so there's no guesswork!
Because the Handles wrap to the bottom this is a tough tote that can withstand a lot of weight. It also maintains its structure nicely (and can take a lot of abuse) thanks to the indoor/outdoor fabric and duck-cloth. There are so many fabulous fabric options in the decor fabrics department. And remember it doesn't require a lot of fabric, so don't forget to also check the remnant bin at your local fabric store.
This is a quick sew, but if you want to go even faster skip the Pocket and the Lining. My preschool-age daughter carried (or should I say, dragged) an unlined version of this tote to school daily and it held up well.
