So I took some pics of the building process. I call this the City Tote. Living in the city I sometimes don't make it home in between errands and stops. So many times I will carry my laptop, gym clothes and regular purse stuff. This tote will hold it all!
The original pattern came from Lotta Jansdotter http://www.jansdotter.com
I deleted a few details and added a few.
|In this shot, I added heavy weight fusible nterfacing to the outside fabric to give it some stability.|
|The inside of the bag is built the same way as the shell. I used a canvas for the inside, to give some body and durability.|
|Drop the liner into the shell and added bias tape around the top.|
|Double needle those straps!|
