There are no shortages on good tote bag patterns on our shelves, but one of the best is Sally Hess's Farmers Market Tote Bag. It's package is unassuming, but it's contents are solid. It's roomy and solid-- perfect for beach trips, big coats, or grocery store trips. Sally has taught sewing for many years and currently fills classes down at MD.This is a good project to gain a little sewing confidence. You'll be putting your bag to use very quickly!
Amy put together this sample tote bag using a new, medium weight, cotton print from Yuwa, cotton webbing, and dark brown cotton canvas. Japanese novelty prints are so tempting, but sometimes they are hard to use up. This is a fantastic application and totally qualifies for the stash busting (in order to stash build!) category.
You can see this sample in the store and pick up everything you need to get going on one of your own. Opening day for the PSU Farmers Market is March 19!
