Project bag, shopping bag, what-have-you, this reversible tote is no-frills but uber versatile. Start with the base pattern and embellish to suit your needs. Make something unique and never lose your bag again!
Be sure to choose woven (not knit) fabrics. I recommend cotton as so many colors and prints are available in this natural fiber. It's sturdy and washes well. If you prefer something tougher, choose a washable outdoor upholstery fabric.
