Pattern Description:

Now THIS is a tote bag. It's 16 inches wide x 14 inches tall x 5 inches deep. I keep this one hanging in my studio to hold packages waiting to be shipped. I keep a few in my car to carry groceries. It's big enough to hold a few bags of chips, 3 or 4 boxes of cereal, or a bunch of veggies (including lots of healthy-but-bulky green leafies) from the farmers market. I use one when we visit friends at the lake - it's big enough to hold a couple of towels, a small blanket, and some snacks. It's a terrific size for carrying bulky things!

The straps are just the right length for slinging it over your shoulder, and the whole thing folds up neatly.

Oh - and it's lined (because contrasting linings are always fun) and has a nice big pocket on one side.

Ready to make your own? It's easy - all straight line sewing and links to videos teaching you every skill you'll need to finish it.
