Eco Shopper by Lisa Cox
In the Spring Tote by Rashida Coleman-Hale, you will combine cotton and linen for a bag that is sturdy yet stylish. The clever handle is woven through large grommets to cinch the top, and a spacious interior with large pocket provides storage for on-the-go essentials.
The Odekake Tote by Ayumi Takahashi is named after a Japanese word that means for going for a little walk, and this easy and quick-to-make quilted tote is perfect for touring around town. It's also a great way to use your favorite fabric scraps in clever, unevenly laid-out appliqués.
The environmentally conscious shopper will appreciate the handy Eco Shopper bag by Lisa Cox. Sew one up in a fun print or embroider the recycling emblem on solid fabric. When not in use it folds up to fit inside a small pocket-sized pouch.
I hope you will enjoy making these useful and beautiful totes. If you are anything like me, you will want to make more than one or each! Please be sure to forward this eBook to your friends who love sewing totes, too!
