A reversible tote bag for my husband. On one side is burlap fabric in natural color. And on the other side is thick linen in red polkadot (don’t look at me, my husband chose the fabrics himself).
No pattern was used for the bag, I just drew directly on the fabric with a ruler and fabric-marking pen.
The bag turned out big and sack-like, enough for all his stuffs. I really like the coarse texture of the burlap side, and the red polkadot side looks really nice too. Now I want to steal this bag.
