Summer Carry All Bag (free)


FREE, This square-bottomed tote bag is fun and easy to make, and perfect for carrying your towel, bathing suit, water bottle, sunscreen, and book to the pool or beach.  It is also great for going to the farmer’s market, gym, or grocery store.  It is a perfect pattern for using up the single yards of fabric you have left in your stash!  The pattern is based off a similar bag in the Folkwear collection from India.  You can make it with a main fabric and lining or you can make it reversible (using two of your favourite fabrics).  The bag also has optional ties so that you can provide some closure to the bag to keep items upright or from falling out.

Materials: 1 yard each of an outer fabric and a lining fabric. The bag can be made to be reversible, but I am still going to use “outer” and “lining” fabrics in the instructions.  You can choose which of your fabrics that will be.
