This designer always designs gorgeous bags. This is a designer-style tote bag called the Uptown Luxury Tote Bag.
As an advanced beginner sewer you can make yourself one of these and go out shopping in style.
The designer has used lovely vibrant fabrics in the example shown and she says that her design will work well with any medium weight fabrics of your choice. But why go for dark (although practical) colors when you can brighten up your day with a bold statement fabric.
By using interfacing, interlining and a bag base insert, the designer has made her lovely creation very strong and sturdy and yet it still looks fantastic.
When you have finished making your Uptown Luxury Tote Bag it will measure approximately 37cm (14½”) high by 41cm (16”) wide at the top and 31cm (12”) wide at the bottom by 10cm (4”) deep and with a 21cm (8”) handles drop.
