It is 6.5" tall x 6" wide x 2.5" deep. I used Butterick's Making History pattern B5371 with slight modifications. I boought it from the costuming tent at last year's Ren faire mainly to make some bracers for my husband.
The pattern is Anna Maria Horner's Multi-Tasker Tote, which can be found in numerous stores and the fabric. The robot fabric I got from Birch fabric which is fabriworm.com's retail location. I am fortunate enough to live locally to them and they have an amazing assortment of kitchy fabrics! Everytime I go in there I find something great!
Well I finally used my Multi-Tasker tote to the point of dis-repair. Seeing that it was the first one I ever made, it was pretty old.

I found a gear print and one that had nuts, bolts and screws. Perfect! So here is my brand spanking new robot multi-tasker tote:

With the price of snacks at the movies well exceeding the price of the movie tickets (that and my husband wanting everything under the moon at the snack bar), I decided to make a tote to carry snacks in. I would take a small backpack, but the local theater will not let you in with one. This one is big enough to carry some cans of soda, a bag of microwave popcorn, and some candy all the while looking like my "purse". Granted that when we go to the store to get it my husband does not pick out the 5lb. bag of Child's Play commenting "What? You said to pick out some candy." There is one long pocket divided into thirds on the outside and the inside. The outside:
