I forget what the pattern is, but it started as a simple tote with no pockets or closure, and short tote-bag length straps.

Home dec weight for both the outer and the lining, the pocket lining is a quilting fat quarter. First zipper, first snap, first pleats!

I definitely have the bug  Grin I made a tote bag out of an old flannel shirt right after... I can't post pictures yet, but here are some links.

What's the fabric inside the pocket?.. It looks vintage.
