When your handbag just isn’t big enough to carry the extra items you need, this bag comes in handy. It makes a great shopping bag too.
A simple tote bag from the book Learn to Sew with Lauren which made use of the remnant denim fabric in my stash. I love a stash busting project, don’t you? This bag is practical, durable and looks good. The contrasting front pocket really makes this bag and is most useful for holding smaller items.
The main rectangle measures 18″ x 16″ for the front and back. The pocket measures 16″ x 10″. The straps measure 21 1/2″ x 4″. The cotton pocket has been stabilised with interfacing and divided into two sections with a button in the centre.
I will look forward to going out with this bag!
