Thanks Wyrillco for the inspiration!  Your totes are awesome.

I went and purchased Anna Graham's 241 Tote pattern rigt away and made this yesterday.  I am a novice with a curmudgeon of an ancient Brother machine so it took me 5 hours. Yikes,  I have a long road ahead of me.  I was still amazed how well and sturdy this bag turned out!  I loooove the outer pockets for my always hard to find cell and keys.   

I spent about $20 on fabric an interfacing at JoAnn's.  I will be waiting for a good sale to make some more. 

Where is everyone that sells their bags finding cheap enough fabric to keep pricing in line?

Thanks!  i just need to be patient enough to wait for the next sale.  My Walmart does have some fabrics.  I will look closer next time I am there.

I love the 241 tote, and you did a great job with it. I really like how you pieced the handle.
