Materials needed to make Finley Tote:
FABRIC A (main exterior) – 1/2 yard
FABRIC B (contrasting exterior bottom + handles and strap) – 3/4 yard
FABRIC C (lining) – 3/4 yard
SF 101 INTERFACING (or other medium weight fusible interfacing of choice) – 2 ¾ yards
one (1) – 9” long METAL OR NYLON ZIPPER
one (1) – 7” long METAL OR NYLON ZIPPER
one (1) – 14” long METAL OR NYLON ZIPPER
two (2) – 1” wide D- RINGS
one (1) – 1” wide RECTANGULAR STRAP SLIDER

EXTERIOR (FABRIC A, FABRIC B) – designer cotton canvas, Essex linen, cotton/linen blend fabric, denim, or medium weight home décor fabric are recommended. Waxed canvas could also be used (no need to add interfacing if you do).
LINING (FABRIC C) – I used quilting cotton for the main lining, but you can also use duck canvas (no need to add interfacing if you use canvas for the lining). Pocket linings work best when quilting cotton is used.
