Red tote for carrying books ... and not only!

Operation 'de-clutter and organize' continues! I needed a small tote bag to carry my Greek textbooks and handouts for class. I kept using uncomfortable laptop bags or canvas totes from Primark which were convenient but did not quite make a personal statement.

This red fabric is fabulous, as it is waterproof and sturdy. I bought it half price at McCulloch and Wallis--quite a bargain! This is the second bag I have made with it and there is still a lot left! I did not use a particular pattern, but did have a Body Shop canvas tote as a guide. Now I have to figure out what to do with my old canvas totes! Hmmmm, I smell a new project!
