So this was my 1st attempt at a tote, I added 1 small pocket on the inside and I didn't add any kind of closure, but it is small and I was unsure of how to do, so here is my bag.It is also reversible and has sesame street on the inside. I made it for my friend who was moving away and used the sesame street to remind her of my daughter.

Thanks for the kind words. I didn't use a pattern. I did sew the 2 pieces of fabric seperately down 1 side, then down the other leaving the top open and then sewed across the 2 bottom corners. When you sew across the bottom corners and then snip off the extra fabric (it is shaped like a triangle), it leaved the bottom of the bag with squared corners. Once I did this to both fabrics. I placed the sesame fabric inside the fish fabric . I made the handles from yellow cotton fabric and sewed that like a casing around nylon straps. Then you must insert and pin the handles between the 2 fabrics and fold both fabrioc top edges over and then stitch around the entire top edge of the bag and then it is done. Sorry if this is confusing, I don't have pics of it as it is being made and it is kind of difficult to explain without showing it. Maybe someday I will get around to a tutorial... Thanks for looking!  Roll Eyes
