Description

I wanted a simple, light, capacious tote bag, and this is it.
Drafted the pattern after making a trial model with newspaper.
Side pockets are handy to put a bottled water.
I really like this fabric. I wanted the pattern of inner fabric to be biased, but the fabric I bought was not enough, so only inner pockets are bias cuts.

      Wow, thank you very much for saying so! You’re also a NYer, right? I’m wondering where you guys always get your fabrics.
