This is the latest tote bag I have made. I was given the fabric by a neighbor and she asked me to make one for her. I thought I remembered the dimensions of my large tote, but I was wrong. The bag turned out GINORMOUS! The final dimensions ended up being around 16 inches tall, 17 inches wide and 6 inches deep. It is perfect for going to the pool (with all my kiddos- towels, sunscreen, etc) or what I will likely use it for- church. I teach music to the children and I have books, props, pictures and everything else it takes to keep kids entertained for 3 hours.
