What are you most proud of? The look of the contrast linings....The smaller bag in front is one similar to the other tote bag project I have posted....much smaller.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern is quite easy but misses some key steps. If you have not made bias binding before, you might need to check out a tutorial on that first. The original tied handles will only work with lightweight fabric, so bear that in mind if you want to stick to the tied look.

For the straps, I trimmed the one I sewed underneath so it was narrower than the top stap. I then just completed them as per the pattern. I then topstitched the wider strap on top of the narrower one so that they were even in length. For the pockets, I just made slip pockets and sewed them in place to the lining of the bag before I sewed the lining and outer pieces together.
