    Made a Large Tote Bag

    I needed a large tote bag so I finally made one. It's so big I think me and my husband can fit inside The front/back panel is 20" square, sides are 9". I'm happy with the finished bag. I used "The Big Bag Theory" pattern as a guide. It's a nice pattern but uses charm squares. I just wanted a different style. Thanks for looking.

    Nice job! BIG TOTES are handy, when you need them. BUT be careful, they can get heavy, if you overfill them.

    Very nice tote. Great colors. Now you will have to take it fabric shopping and fill it up.

    Beautiful tote, looks like it is big enough for a whole quilt to fit in.

    It is a very lovely tote bag I like experiment on quilt blocks and then make them into shopping bags.
