This designer has given us all for FREE her tutorial on how to sew her grown-up Tote Book Bag.
It was inspired by ones she made for her kids but this one is for adults. It’s perfect to hold your pile of reading material and there are small pockets on the sides for any other necessary items. The designer keeps her own Book Bag full of quilting magazines and a drawing notebook for her to use while she is in the car waiting to pick up the kids from school.
The finished bag measures 10” tall and 15” wide, not including the handles.
In the examples shown the designer used inexpensive natural cotton duck fabric with some of her favorite colorful fabric prints. And to make the handles she used batting scraps trimmed from her latest quilt project. If you decide to use a different fabric to cotton duck fabric then make sure to use an upholstery weight or heavier fabric.
