I made this tote using 5 fat quarters and an extra piece of fabric for the straps. You will have strips left for a second tote. This was a "create as you go" project using a QAYG method. I think it turned out pretty nice but there are a few things I will do to improve it the next time. The recipient was really thrilled with it so that's what counts. The pocket in the lining was a top of a sheet leftover from some curtains I made for someone years ago. You can see the decorative satin trim. Didn't have enough to do a pocket on the other side.
