I thought I would start sharing some of my simple sewing patterns, beginning with this one.
This is a pattern for a Reversible Tote Bag made out of four squares of fabric (two for each side) and some cotton webbing for the handles. All the seams are topstitched which makes the bag keep its shape - however much you stuff in it! The finished bag measures about 14" tall, 12" wide and 4" deep.
These make good presents - I've made more for other people than for myself - and are a great excuse to buy that lovely fabric you don't know what to do with.
Let me know if you'd like more sewing patterns like this and I'll write up some more.
