    Pattern for a large, canvas tote?

    I'm looking for a pattern for a large, canvas tote - one that is about 24" wide and that has a flat bottom. I'd like to use it to carry food, beverages, etc., to our boat. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thank you.

    I just found a wonderful online tutorial with pictures that is quite simple and adjustable.
    It is on www.craftbuds.com a the tutorial is called "Totes Big and Small".
    I plan on making on today.

    Crafty Gemini has a tote pattern that includes a how to video for $3.00 on her website. It's called the Must Have Tote Bag. I have the pattern and I have made about 12 of them. The tote bag is perfect for groceries, but the body of the bag is smaller than 24" (the pieces that make the body of the bag are cut at 20" x 20"). Her pattern uses a yard of material so if you adjust the size to make it larger you would have to buy more than one yard.

    I am also looking for a large tote to carry quilting supplies to class and found this -

    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
