Thanks for showing me which Pinterest Un-Tutorial you want me to sew next! It's pretty clear that I'll be sewing a new tote bag!
I originally found this image on Pinterest, but the link leads to a dangerous looking spam page that I had to quickly back out of, so I'm not going to link to it here. Then I did a google image search and didn't find any real clues to the origin of this bag that way. I imagine that someone snapped a picture from a book or a magazine and that's where it came from.
No matter where it came from... I'm going to sew my own version now. :)
The features that I want to keep are the piping and the curved top edge. I think I'll use Sarah's perfect fabric purse handles tutorial for the handles (but my Japanese style bag handle tutorial would work well too).
And I'll definitely use one of my favorite fabrics on the front plus put pockets on the inside.
The only question is... what size should I make it? Little-tote size? Purse size? Or big beach bag size? Tell me what you think in the comments.
