Large Tote Bag

Sharing another item on the Freshly Handmade Christmas list with you today. Here is the large tote bag I designed and made for my teenage niece. It measure approximately 14" W x 14" H x 6" D and is the perfect size for carrying all her running gear or to use as an overnight bag if staying at a friend's house.

On the outside, I used a decorator-weight cotton fabric. Stitching in a contrast color shows off some of the details.

The inside is lined with a quilting cotton in polka dots (my fave). I added a few pockets for some essentials and a clasp to hold things like keys so you don't have to dig around the bottom of the bag.
I like that the bag is flexible, but you could easily add fusible fleece or interfacing to give it more structure.

I have one more bag to share with you from the handmade Christmas list, which I will do tomorrow. I'm off to play in the snow with the kiddos.
